QR codes is optional
Built-in HTTP server is optional
Binary logging - yeah, it logs stuff. Calling logging functionality in a
program which is meant to log things is a bit much.
You cannot separate it, if you look at status output of a service it'll
use the journal to give you useful output. Splitting things has
sideeffects. If the gain is uncertain of vague ("I don't like it" /
"UNIX philosophy"), then IMO time to trust the package maintainer.
