What logs should be displayed by default in the gnome-system-log viewer?

Currently gnome-system-log is not displaying any log in Ubuntu [1], 
that's because it tries to parse /etc/syslog.conf to get the list of 
logs to display, which doesn't work with rsyslog.

Does anyone have an opinion on what logs should be displayed by default, 
we could either use a static list in the default config of 
gnome-system-log or make it parse one of the rsyslog files if there is 
one which would provides the list we need.
