Regarding systemd-tools. I requested this package (which essentially
contains all the bits of systemd that can be used without the systemd
daemon) so that we can use it from initscripts. Lots of stuff in
initscripts and systemd are the same, so this should allow us to
delete a lot of code :-)

I'll post patches to arch-projects for review shortly.
