You did that last week - I got forwarded logs from #systemd.  That's
probably why I wasn't in a great mood with you this morning ;-)

I think you're wrong, you think I'm wrong; let's go shopping :-)

I only jumped in to refute your comment that you'd talked to me, and I
hadn't listened, because that was incorrect.

I'm not sure there's any point in technical discussion about the
relative merits of our two approaches at this point, since you've
already *written* systemd and you're already pushing for inclusion in
distributions, and I'm continuing to develop Upstart and already have it
in distributions.

So what we've ended up with is two different systems, and one can assume
that roughly half the distributions will end up with one, and another
half with the other.

At least we have the common standard of the LSB Init Scripts that both
will support.
