I have a feeling this should be documented somewhere, but I can't seem
to find anything about it.

When catching up with the latest package updates just now I noticed I
had a passwd.pacnew file in /etc.  When merging in the changes I found
I have two systemd user entries that don't appear in the upstream

  systemd-journal-remote:x:997:997:systemd Journal Remote:/:/usr/bin/nologin
  systemd-journal-upload:x:996:996:systemd Journal Upload:/:/usr/bin/nologin

Are they safe to remove?

The results point out the fragility of programmer expertise: advanced
programmers have strong expectations about what programs should look like,
and when those expectations are violated--in seemingly innocuous
ways--their performance drops drastically.
