Well, if they didn't need fixed before, they'll certainly need fixed
when you make them start keeping their configuration info someplace else
than /etc/sysconfig.  This proposal sounds more like "wait, systemd has
not yet broken everything in sight, how can we solve that problem?"
than like something that will actually improve matters for anyone.
