I don't systemd-journal-gateway creates any systemd-journal-gateway
owned files. That said, if we want to remove the system user account, we
probably need to add a systemctl try-restart
systemd-journal-gatewayd.service before the deluser call so we don't
have any running processes with that uid.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
