[lug] Syslog woes

I'm trying to reduce the trivial stuff that's going to syslog (like the entire
postfix log of every step of the delivery process for every email like is
default with Etch), and I put this:
as the only line in /etc/syslog.conf relating to /var/log/syslog, and then
but all the Postfix junk is still going to /var/log/syslog. What gives? I
also tried "mail.err" instead of "mail.error" since the syslog.conf man page
says "error" is deprecated.
1) What am I missing here?
2) Why is "warn" deprecated in favor of "warning" but "error" is deprecated
in favor of "err"? Doesn't make sense. I get the feeling someone
somewhere in a dank BOFH basement is chuckling about that one.
