    I don't see why not, but I also can't think of an application where we
    would want to do that.

What if the journal is for an encrypted disk? It would probably be desirable for the journal data to be encrypted in that case, especially if the stream was a socket to an offsite machine. It might be necessary to store key data in the journal; depending on just how the encryption is done.

(Sorry if this sounds like I'm playing devil's advocate. I really meant to ask this question earlier, but I didn't really (and don't now) have the knowledge to ask it in a more detailed/helpful manner.)
