Journal file location

Is there any way that one can change the location of the journal
file when the file system is created ? For eg., instead of using inode# 7
and the blocks at the beginning of the file system, I'd like to use an
inode at a different cylinder group and some other set of blocks. Even if
I'm allowed only to use one of the reserved inodes, is it possible to put
the journal file somewhere in the "middle" of the file system rather than
at the beginning ?
