ooooh now i see. maybe you meant to post here:

"KISS, #2 in the top ten list of misunderstood/abused/regurgitated concepts."
let me get this straight, you tried once, it didn't work once, so now
it's garbage? you must think the whole AUR is garbage too then? or

indeed, and i'd mostly agree. however while im not a developer for
archlinux, i wouldnt waste time on obsolete systems when a better
alternative saves me time; you may end up maintaining the initscripts
yourself. keep that in mind.
the point of systemd is to make ALL of our lives easier, not more difficult.
