I don't think this patch should go into upstream Sugar. Using a version
support enabled data store will naturally provide this information and
in the meantime there are less intrusive ways [2,3] to achieve the same

If we merge it now, the Journal entry metadata will become inconsistent
with the information provided by a version support enabled data store
once that gets rolled out as there may be multiple branches of the same
