I was a little bit forward :S. Sorry, anyway, such important changes are
not that easy, reading manpages as a dyslexic in a foreign language
isn't fun for me, while the old style without systemd perfectly works.
I'm not against progress, it's just that I'm (was) scary when I read
systemd is from the same guy as pulseaudio is.


PS: I anyway will not switch to systemd now ;).
