I'm not trying to "judge" it at all. But when the first thing I really
hear about a project is "we should replace our init system", my ears
prick up and I start to dig to find out what the new thing is (which I
admit I had never heard of) and why the rush. I'll read your blog again,
and I'm sure you have good ideas, I'm just not keen to see us rush into
replacing the init system again without some good co-ordination (I'm not
just thinking with my RHEL hat on, but I admit to also thinking about
other users of the base bits in the future).

I'll shutup now and read your blog.
