This is rather interesting the person that has been the nosiest the most 
about systemd breaking his system, disrupting his workflow and what not, 
is now advocating that we potentially disrupt all deployments by 
bringing in a newer release of systemd which means bringing in updates 
to surrounding components as well to accommodating the changes that have 
been made not only in systemd but the surrounding components so as well.

What is this the twilight zone?

How about you stop wasting people mail storage spaces and channel that 
energy in actually helping out in the migration to systemd to aid in 
preventing users from experiencing the same unfortunate experience you 
seemed to have had.

How about you actually for once provide a migrated legacy sysv init 
script to a native systemd unit in a bug report in bugzilla instead of 
demanding one from the maintainer or help maintainers updating 
documentation surrounding their component or bring a patch upstream that 
fixes the brokenness you seem to be experiencing.

Yeah how about that...

If you are incabable of doing the above I suggest you stop wasting 
people times with this noise.

I can tell you one thing here and now that with my QA hat on I nack this 
proposal in an instance and I'm pretty sure the rest of the QA community 
is on the same opinion.
