As long as all bug reports for non-logind systems go straight to Lukas
(and whoever else maintains this), I don't care. If we don't have those
packages in community, they'll be in a third-party repository - and I
prefer having them in community in this case.

Regarding initscripts: Once Tom stops taking care of them, either
someone else will or they will be dropped. It doesn't concern me either way.

My only requirements are
1) Lukas takes care of the bugs.
2) It doesn't cause problems for those that don't use these packages.
3) It stays in community and doesn't touch core or extra.

It's a principle I claimed to follow in all those lengthy systemd
discussions: If someone wants to do this extra work, let them.
