When I wrote the previous mail, I was thinking that the transaction log 
was a bit more demanding than the journal.  Namely, we need to be able 
to guarantee that every change stored into the TxLog  reflect the state 
of the backend. The journal can simply store changes without taking care 
of what happens on the backend.

the reason why there is a difference is that we may differ real writes 
to the backend, when the journal is flushed immediately.

Now, we can couple both logs, as the difference is slight.
