Sounds good to me. I did not want to burn many locs, because I thought
that using just one location and size should be enough because that
location can contain a variety of information, but then everyone knows
that this location contains journal specific information, and also
what the size of that information is to fetch it. In that first location
you can store any number of other location pointers or other information.
