Feel free to send any of these patches in my direction, by the way.
I'm more than willing to incorporate any sensible changes into the
journal-related scripts.

I'll take a closer look at this patch tomorrow afternoon.

My original idea was that copy-to-journal was "strictly" for use in
scripted environments; a school, say, would want to preload data
into all of the laptops for the kids via SSH injection.  I put
quotes around "strictly" because obviously that isn't really the
case.  I have no problems with making copy-*-journal more friendly
for day-to-day use.
