A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Rather than reinvent the wheel, why not resuse what is already there?
I've even persuaded it to create MySQL based logs of emails through Exim + Spam Assassin + SA-Exim + ClamAV.
Good luck making that easier via Journal.
At least Rsyslog has been around for ages and developed by someone who is _somewhat_ focused on one thing.
As MS et al have found to their cost as well, logging is not easy and does not lend itself to many standards.
Facilitating parsing and passing is useful however - and for that RSyslog is a bit good.
