Are you envisioning these journal files being created by anything
other than systemd? If not, are these python/curl/etc. clients
just substitutes for journald neglecting to upload its files earlier?
sure what you mean by "neglecting". It is *not* supposed to be
a workaround for a malfunction where systemd-journal-upload
e.g. crashed and did not upload some logs; that case should be handled
by the (automatic) restart and systemd-journal-upload continuing at
the last known uploaded place.
What I had in mind is e.g. some custom filter / log-mangling software,
which would upload a subset/superset of logs.
