10 Imho that's no problem. If a higher level has a hard dependency on a
11 lower level, that's no surprise. And why should I care if someone else's
12 desktop pulls in any particular low-level plumbing. :-)
14 BUT! If my choice of low-level plumbing (systemd) pulls in a desktop I
15 don't want that is a BIG PROBLEM. If I'm running headless, I don't even
16 WANT a desktop !!! I more and more get the feeling that linux is
17 standardising on the Gnome desktop, which I really just DO NOT get on with.
19 Cheers,
