This is one of the effects of this proposal, we focus in one way to do
things, make it handle the few cases it does not and this issue will
go away.

This would mean forcing systemd on users whether they want it or not,
whether it gives them something or not, even whether it works for them
or not. Please don't do it. Please show first that systemd can work
reliably and that it can give the users (admins) something that the old
solution didn't. This is the way to persuade people that the new
solution is better than the old one, not forcing it on them and not
giving them a choice.

My proposition is: don't even start to talk about taking normal init
away until there is at least one distribution release where systemd
works at least as well as init does (and 12.1 definitely isn't one).
