I would argue that this is more a problem of AppArmor
Yes, that's it. apparmor has to provide a way to know if it is loaded or not, not some shell script guessing...
I was a skeptic initially about systemd, based on my experience with pulseaudio. I'm still quite allergic to having pulse on my system.
That said, knowing Frederic, I knew openSUSE was going to have a very competent developer/packager handling this.
Recently, at work I've been working fixing a number of broken/inconsistent initscripts as well as using systemd on 12.2.
Yes, SysV initscript have been around a long time, but they are certainly not perfect and in some cases can be damn fussy, fragile and not fun to maintain.
While there are some issues to be fixed, I am totally convinced systemd is the way forward.
Having a single set of cross-distro system management tools is a very worthwhile and useful way of making Linux more flexible in the future. systemd files are simple. No more need to have separate debian/suse/fedora versions.
I liken it going from auto* to cmake. Simpler, cleaner - sane error messages.
