Neither does the actual journalctl. :-)
But, systemd's naming convention is to call first-tier shell utilities
<something>ctl and second-tier shell utilities systemd-<something>ctl.
It should definitely not be in the Python library.
I prefer to have the first layer of C wrappers mimic the original C
API as closely as possible (in function names and arguments) and have
a regular Python wrapper providing an OO-friendly, Pythonic interface.
It keeps the C minimal and opens the door to alternative Pythonic
abstractions without forcing the authors to write their own C module.
