No, we completely refactored the packages over the last couple of
months, so that is no longer the case.

You are encouraged to install systemd-git, systemd-arch-units-git and
initscripts-systemd-git. It will not conflict with the standard
initscripts package, and you can switch back and forth by making the
change in GRUB during boot.

I'm trying to keep the wiki page up-to-date, so please use that rather
than the forum thread to find information, as the forum thread will
quickly get outdated (as soon as a problem crops up in the forum we
try to fix it ;-) ).
