I think the TTY granularity for autogroups is *intentionally* finer than
session granularity, which is why Linus' running kbuild doesn't
interfere with the rest of his desktop.

So if we confirm that this is a win, then I hope you also make sure that
systemd's grouping doesn't interfere with autogrouping benefits.  That
could just mean that systemd explicitly does what autogroup is
implicitly doing.
