privoxy does not log into /var/log/privoxy/logfile with the current systemd privoxy.service configuration,
even if it's enabled in the /etc/privoxy/config. It logs to journal.

Something like:

#ExecStart=/usr/bin/privoxy --no-daemon /etc/privoxy/config

ExecStart=/usr/bin/privoxy --pidfile /run/ --user privoxy.privoxy /etc/privoxy/config
ExecStop=/usr/bin/rm /run/

is needed.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:

logdir /var/log/privoxy
logfile logfile
# log destination request
debug 1024

Sounds more like an upstream issue

Though this issue is pretty old, don't we want to get the service file straight?
Seems like a reasonable request to me.
