Are you sure?

Okay, it's mostly the mad hold-outs, but Devuan, funtoo, gentoo, that's 
three distros off the top of my head that don't default to systemd. And 
they're the ones (gentoo especially) that devs might well be running.

I think a sane set of options from uname is much better. That's pretty 
much guaranteed to be universal, I believe, and you could even make the 
options a user-specified matter should they be mad enough to want to.
