Yes - if systemctl is ultimately the only daemon control command then
everything that is needed should be included, once all sysV stuff has
gone from >=f17?

I would like to see something in systemctl to achieve what used to be
done with "service iptables save" - as another poster already said one
can manually do:
iptables-save > /etc/sysconfig/iptables

Most daemon controls were done with either of "service" or "chkconfig"
- would be nice to have it all within systemctl.

So why not just have this from systemctl using something like
"systemctl save iptables.service" ?
