[systemd-devel] journald and kernel logging

Is the fact that journald reads the kernel log, but doesn't prevent
the messages from outputting to the active terminal a bug or desired

# echo "Test" > /dev/kmsg

If I, let's say, connect a USB device then the active terminal is
spammed with the kernel log messages. I can prevent this by starting a
system logger, but with journald running I shouldn't need another one,
