please do this, this was what i expected for F15 to avoid
a inconsistent systems and if it is allowed for F16 too not
to make the change some lazy maintainers will wait forever

no problem

the really needed server packages are built on own infrastructure and
i will backport the F16 packages before we roll out F15, that is the
reason for my anger - i am not so good in writing service files and
things that are not existing i can not backport :-(

other peopole can take the src.rpm from F15 in most cases and do
"rpmbuild --rebuild src.rpm" and finally we have a chance to get
this lean without waiting a decade

hopefully systemd will have a long future like sysvinit had for some
decades and in 3 years that starts all again with an incompatible
