AFAIU from this thread, journald support should not be enabled except "regular 
users can read the output". Now what I'm missing here is: if Qt is built with 
journald support, can it be still be used if journald is *not* present?

Yes, I happen to be maintaining Qt for a distro in which users can still 
choose the init system.

UNIX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a
genius to understand the simplicity.
