FWIW fail2ban _is_ porting to journald.
But fail2ban still does not support IPv6, which is mildly irritating.
Further they seem to be dragging their feet about the issue, even though
a few people have tried making patches for it. I believe it has
something to do with the way it is implemented, which would require a
partial rewrite ideally. Also there has been a debate on setting
different IPv6 subnet bans, which is where partially the hold-up rests.
I hope the issue gets resolved soon.
