The idea I had in mind is "implicit place for implicit save(on every
activity deactivation) and explicit place(journal) for explicit
save(Stop or Keep buttons in activity)"
So, delete will just work(will delete current explicit journal object)
and if activity is still open, new object will appear in journal only if
user click Stop or Keep buttons (or on activity crash, tmp object will
appear as well).
