By default, the VMs do not start because the virtual disks are not set to readonly. This is only needed when using the ISO though. Might stay this way as long as the user is correctly advised to change to set the disk to readonly mode.

journal keeps metadata about each message, so it's possible to avoid it with `journalctl -p err -b` (I've added `-b` to avoid listing messages from previous boot).

It definitely was relevant for old stubdomain hosting qemu (which is still possible to use in R4.0). Not sure if applies to new linux-based stubdomain.

GUI isolation is very important, no?

Xpra is only used for GUI isolation.

The problem is, xpra (actually xpra | xserver-xephyr | xvfb) isn't in the list of Recommends: of the firejail package by accident. We don't really know the rationale of that. Could be an optional dependency and without it, some things someone who knows firejail who is happy to find it installed would wonder why it actually does not work.
