On a 'theory of argument' note: "not typically used as a server" does
not mean the same thing as "never used as a server" (and moreover, was
clearly carefully worded that way). Given that, anecdotal instances of
"but I use it as a server!" don't really serve to further the argument
in a concrete way.

I think we had some pretty useful responses noting alternative ways to
manage systemd and plans to improve s-c-s which I think addressed the
initial concerns pretty well, right?
