I keep a journal using the simple journal-mode, and eventually, journal
entries give origin to new items (projects or next actions, in the GTD

When you are writing the journal post, and if a project, next action comes
to your mind, you don't want to switch context and go to the org file to add
this entry. So, what I thought was to either:
 * Add each journal file to the agenda list (which could be inefficient, as
the list would eventually grow too big, not sure how this would affect
 * Copy these entries to the main gtd.org file

The objective is to do it automagically, when saving the file (or in the
case of the first option, when the file is created).

However, I would need to mark them somehow, maybe between tags? Like:
[gtd][/inbox] (means it should go to the gtd.org file)
[inbox][/inbox] (means it is unprocessed info that should go into the
inbox.org file, just as remember-org does)

This way, we would have a nice and simple journaling system that would
integrate itself with the GTD system. The only thing lacking would be a UI
to browse the journal entries (to give the overview), but I'm planning to
develop one soon, following the agenda overview view.

I find journaling a very good habit that helps you to dump your thoughts and
reflect on them. It sits on the reference category of GTD. I used to use a
tomboy daily note, but it got lost in the myriad of other notes I had, so I
started using emacs -- and that's why I'd like to develop a view that showed
me something like:
    |___ Month
    |_____ Day:Weekday

But this is another story :)
