I only hope fixing those issues won't take more effort than maintaining
our own thing/better alternative one day. It's fine when you can just
use configure flags to disable bad features during build time, but what
if they start adding proprietary parts to systemd and GNOME will use it
even harder? systemd is LGPL'd after all.
