Well that wouldn't be a systemd issue but a flaw in our feature process.
We have Feature foo with rollback plan to go back to bar.
We decide to revert foo due to bug X, Y and Z and we and up with foo
after beta ...
It is a potential problem with all features, but more so for replacing
the init system because the stakes are higher and the amount of testing
required is greater.
The "contingency plans" on most of the feature pages seem to state only
what the rolled-back configuration is, not how it will be tested.
