Go ahead. Maintaining 2 systems is a lot of duplicate work. Besides the
duplicate work, you'll get covered in patches trying to support setups
that avoid installing something new.

Polkit is an example of this: we have a patch to make systemd optional
at runtime, we request users to test it, and instead of testing it we
end up with a 300+ posts thread about how bad Lennart is, with nearly
no-one trying to investigate what is wrong about the patch and in which
situations it doesn't work.
