Excerpts from Gary Martin's message of Tue Sep 14 19:14:10 +0200 2010:

> - the normal Stop icon should be used (ideally it would be placed on the far right, swapped with the fullscreen button)
> - clicking it would raise a naming dialogue (not all your fields are needed for Journal, just name, description, and tags)
> - options on the dialogue for Save, Don't Save, Cancel
> - Save creates a Journal entry if working on a new un-saved activity, or overwrites the existing entry if working on a resumed activity

No, please, no!

Let me quote my own thesis:

In absence of version support, please always make "destroy old version"
and "destroy current version" separate UI actions.
