Well, the opposite was the original position: that it wasn't the desktop
team's job to worry about if the kernel / systemd / initscripts /
whatever had a bug which prevented the operation completing, it was only
desktop team's job to make sure the operation fired correctly.

I don't want to split hairs too finely, I just want to make sure we
don't lose anything of our original intent :)
