Piotr,

First of all, thank you for the elaborate response.  I'll comment on it
in full a bit later.  Please see my brief comments below.

I think you are confused.  My opinion (if any) was that a) developers
invested a lot of effort and b) the documentation is good.  I never
advocated that it's a panacea and also I said that it "looks logical"
not that it indeed is.

My point of bringing this discussion on (as you may see from my reply to
croco@) is that we should do something about that.  Either to commit
that we are strongly against getting systemd into Owl or try to pick the
most important parts from that so-called platform to keep compatible
with the rest of RH-based distros.

Anyway, thanks for your original reply -- I'll properly reply a bit
later.
