In other words, the new rule is to assume that whoever set the system up 
and runs it doesn't know what they're doing and to override all of their 
customizations. I'm not surprised, really, it fits right in with the 
apparent attitude of the Gnome devs.

Right now, I'll admit, systemd reminds me of my opinion of pulseaudio 
when it first came out: a solution looking for a problem that doesn't 
exist.  The old init system wasn't broken, so why replace it with one 
that doesn't completely work as yet?
