Thanks for the advice, but so far I have not installed anything,
and I will only do so if and when I'm convinced that I will be
able to configure the system as I want it. Which is nothing 
special since it has been working exactly like that for the past
few years and with absolutley minimal reconfiguration effort from
my side. And also because it's not a toy but something I depend
on for my income.

I'm perfectly prepared to put some effort into migrating to
systemd, but I'm not prepared to 'fight' it in order to get
what I want. If systemd is half as superior as it is claimed
to be, then some manpage, or wiki, or an experienced user
should be able to tell me what to do, without ifs and maybes.
So far that is not the case, but I hope for the best.
