What about the discoverability of the journald commands? "Discoverability" is 
really no argument for or against IMHO, since it's equally bad for both. 
I wouldn't have known how to get the logs from journald without reading the 
rest of this thread.

I don't want to prevent progress, but what I'm missing in this thread is a 
reason WHY to use journald. Filtering? grep can do that too, on ~/.xsession-

So yeah to me it just sounds like a way to fill up the '/' partition - 
possibly at the expense of other users; on a system with quotas for each 
user's home it would kind of break the idea of the quota, no?

Kevin Krammer: kDebug uses qDebug.
