Glad we agree. I think putting more pressure so systemd isn't given as granted would be more healthy for both those who are not using it (because, again, is an aberration for any kind of daemon not written for it) and those that want to use it (since maybe as desktop-only it might have some nice integrations). Probably just adding the dbus interfaces and thinning it down might be something useful if that integration might have use-cases. lu - not feeling a mindless lemming
