Now that's interesting.

I'm a big fan of systemd, and not a big fan of simpleinit-msb.

It's been my intent to build an ISO that installs with systemd and get
all that stuff working. I'm sure it'll upset a lot of people, however,
because we all like what we like.

That being said, if we do want to go with a migration to systemd, which
I would really support, we'd need to build an appropriate migration
path, as well as big fat warnings and such.

We might want to go with IMP, but it's a lot of work.

We could go the simpler path at first, and just build a package of init
scripts that can be symlinked into the /etc/systemd/system directory for
use there. I personally prefer this option, as it's simpler and easier
to get done.

Or we could keep chugging along with simpleinit-msb, and whatever we get
from the non-systemd udev.

What do you guys think? To start the discussion, I think we should work
towards migrating towards systemd with a simple spell containing
initscripts for systemd for spells in our grimoire.
