This is a good point and in fact I just used it in this way today.  I'm
debugging some async code (via emacs-async) package and as you might
imagine, it's rather complicated.  Logging to files made it much
simpler, and I only had to add one line (the file appender)

What unit would it log to though?  Or can journald also ingest logs for
non-unit source?  Since I imagine not many people run Emacs as a systemd
service.  I'm not very knowledgable about this stuff :grin:

Ihor also mentioned appender to log into *warnings*... so there's
definitely a lot of potential destinations to be handled out of the box.
