In this case the super-ingenious Lennart Poettering, I guess.

That said, Gentoo always had separate config files located
in /etc/conf.d. So the idea of not having one single rc.conf is not
this new. Nevertheless one single /etc/rc.conf makes the administration
a bit more comfortable, because you have all settings at a glance and
don't need to cat or edit several files.

Regarding the threats of switching from Arch to Fedora: Fedora is
Redhat. As far as I know Lennart Poettering is an employee of Redhat.
So do you guys really think that Fedora is better in this regard and
won't support systemd and those single config files?
