While trying to figure out apt-daily.service boot delay in my other
thread, I notice that Mozilla Thunderbird and SeaMonkey calendar
extensions are writing to syslog:

[calGoogleSessionManager] Creating session <snip>
gnome-session[4983]: [calCachedCalendar] Performing playback operation
add on 0 items to <snip>@gmail.com
gnome-session[4983]: [calCachedCalendar] Performing playback operation
modify on 0 items to <snip>@gmail.com
gnome-session[4983]: [calCachedCalendar] Performing playback operation
delete on 0 items to <snip>@gmail.com
gnome-session[4983]: [calCachedCalendar] Doing changelog based sync for
calendar googleapi://<snip>/?calendar=<snip>%40gmail.com
gnome-session[4983]: [calGoogleSession] Token expired 1478xxxxx seconds
ago, resetting
gnome-session[4983]: [calGoogleCalendar] Logging in session <snip>

The information contains email account information, reminders, id tags
etc that I would prefer not be written to syslog. Sometime back I seem
to recall that there was a way to turn off certain applications writing
to syslog - can anyone remind me how to do this?
