I've "converted" two Arch installations from initscripts to systemd.
After some fiddling about my nfs-mounts systemd works fine, and I didn't
get any problem with it so far. 
I hardly understand people who only read about systemd and complain all
the time. Is it just the fear of new things? Maybe systemd will make
things easier for arch-newbies, because they have not to care about the
order of the DAEMONS in rc.conf (networkmanager after dbus etc.). And I
hardly believe that people are using Arch only because of "simplicity"
of one single config file.
