Wildcards or directory
Have a directory of logs of either unknown names, or "too many to list". In particular from radius that just puts logs under NAS ip. Or http with many virtual hosts.
Would be nice to be able to specify an entire directory, "/path/dir/" or parhaps allow wildcards "/path/dir/*". And have it handle anything that matches. (Naturally knowing to ignore files created by itself *.gz or whatever).
Date in file names
It would be very useful if newsyslog had an option to add date into archived file's name, for example, maillog.2002.11.25.gz instead of maillog.0.gz
I had to switch to another method of log rotation just because of this :/ (very unfortunate, since newsyslog otherwise would be an excellent alternative).

Presumably you're thinking of the program usually called 'syslogd', not this one, which is called 'newsyslog'. :-)
(note syslog-ng already has a pipe() driver)
The ability to specify a pipe in the syslog.conf would be very useful.
