Yeah, I understand your point, but, please, don't feel burned by the
flames. There are always some people that answer with an excessively
angry tone, without a good justification. Go figure...

That thread helped me to discover about systemd (thanks to C. Anthony
Risinger for the high level answers), so it was not in vain.

I'll really never understand why people answer with anger to a sincere
question. Yeah, maybe you're not on a good mood, but maybe that is
another reason to refrain to discuss. I'll not cite any names, because
this is not a witch hunt. Just would like to make people think (yeah,
I'm a dreamer... :-))

So, thanks for the discussion :-)
