15 True.
17 On second thought, I now remember that Lennart said that there was no
18 intention to use syslog's udptcp output. So he hadn't ruled out http.
19 And I misrepresented the systemd line.

27 You can filter/manipulate logs with journalctl - and nicely so - but
28 you can't combine it with journal-gatewayd; the latter exports all the
