I wholeheartedly second this, systemd is way too monolithic. What ever
happened to the traditional *nix philosophy of writing a program that
did one thing, and did it really well. If i wanted to be forced lack of
choice, I'd be using OS X or Windows, not Linux. This is actually one
of the primary reasons I refuse to use Debian or Ubuntu anymore. Even
worse, I've heard rumblings of plans to integrate D-Bus into systemd,
although that's likely to result in somebody forking D-Bus.
