So what I gather from this discussion is that the main questions are:
Do we support systemd? If yes, do we use IMP?
Do we *eventually* force migration to it or do we allow it as an option?

With an increasing reliance on systemd in the GNU/Linux userland and
by popular distros, I don't think we can avoid it. Especially if GNOME
depends on it (
I'm sure that time will force us in one direction for the latter
question, so I think that can be safely ignored for now. I don't think
we can even think about that question until we have a fully-functional
systemd spell anyway,

David stated that getting systemd to work with IMP is a lot of work,
but suggests that a lot of
the work is already done. I have no idea what state IMP is currently
in however.
What advantages does using IMP bring? Is it just an easier way to
manage multiple init systems?

Personally, I do not like systemd, but I do think it is the right way
to go and is something the Linux userland needs.
