I presume you mean appending journal entries to the file?  Yes, and
that's a lot safer than other ways of doing it.  But make sure that you
handle situations of high latency (NFS/Samba) and low disk space well.

Also, there needs to be a way to remove particular entries from the
project file.  Say I accidentally add a layer from a file that I
*really* don't want to be in there (a scan of my credit card, for
example).  I want to be able to completely purge it.
