Actually, iiuc, tomasz is talking about migrating sysv-init scripts to
systemd unit files.  There is a blocker to doing that in F15 which is that
lennart, notting, and walters (that I remember) are against doing a mass
migration to unit files until after systemd has been running for at least
one release.  This allows best practices for writing unit files to emerge
and get codified in a packaging guideline.  Without information on how to
write unit files well, we're not going to be porting scripts over.
