That was my point. I have had far too many negative experiences with Pulse 
Audio, Avahi, etc, for me to completely trust systemd when we already have 
something that works fine, causes next to no problems, and all for a couple of 
features I don't really see us needing as being part of a default system (Not 
everyone uses RAID/LVM/Encryption. In fact, I don't even think most Arch users 
use it, so I doubly see no point in this.). systemd could maybe go into 
[extra], but being put into [core] as a part of base, even as something 
running in parrallel with SysV init, I just don't get it.
