I think we had some idea that dracut would be switching to use systemd 
to run things, but what we didn't anticipate was the amount of fallout 
from that switch in our scripts.

This was compounded by focusing on building newUI on top of F17 content 
because it was stable, rather than fighting the never ending slog of 
rawhide issues, so we didn't notice all the subtle ways things were 
breaking in rawhide until it was late in the game.
