Joint compound over plaster?

I have a ceiling that had a roof leak before I bought the house. I wasn't aware of this (of course) because the realtor (relitter) didn't tell me about it.
Anyway the ceiling wasn't fixed properly. Guess she hired some jackleg to fix it. What I have is the skim coat of the plaster that was loose and fell away, and even more since I scraped the loose stuff off. I need to skim coat it, with a thin layer of either joint compound or plaster, about 1/8 of an inch. Which would be better? I'd like to use joint compound if I can because I already have some. But I also want a durable finish. There are a couple of small areas that I need to fix.

Go ahead and use the joint compound. A couple of coats with be nice and smooth. 1/8 inch wont make a difference in the durability, especially on a ceiling.
