that's all fine

but why the heck was there a need to include it in systemd, replace the 
all the years existing readahead daemon from Fedora and then abandon and 
remove it finally?

that's one reason why so many people are annoyed be systemd take over 
more and more components far away from an init-daemon and if 
systemd-upstream later decides that part is no longer interesting and 
nobody has a need to use it like readahead what happens then?
