Journal is pixel-perfectly compatible with syslogd, so your scripts would work fine with it.

This is the first that I've heard of this.

Since it's rsyslog that's being removed, how much of the rsyslog.conf and rsyslog.d/*.conf will Journal understand?

My understanding was that the Journal authors were claiming that you could feed the data into the journal with syslog tools, but that accessing the data required new tools (due to all the new capabilities that the journal introduced), and that the files created were in a new, binary format to support the new anti-modification stuff (among other things)

Journal doesn't understand rsyslog's config, but it outputs syslog in exactly the same format by default (by design).

If it doesn't understand the configs, how does it tell which logs to output to which files?

Or is all this just hard-coded somewhere to match the Fedora default?

With rsyslog, .rpm packages could drop .conf files into /etc/rsyslog.d to provide package specific configs.
