enabling autopkgtest makes sense for it, as that is not constrained by

why wouldn't one use systemd-journald native API directly with a
catalogue of messages which would be translatable as well?
Are you envisioning to ever support non-ubuntu-main configurations, or
for example all-typical linux distros?
The problem with liblogging-stdlog is that whilst nice, it's new. Thus
one will end up with just syslog fallback path, or already has it
anyway thus journald is just a new code path.
.... there is even more simple way =) just use syslog() as journald
slurps that up by default ;-)

I would not pre-emptively promote things into main, as it would be
