Is there reason to believe this would be a particular problem with
systemd? Most of the controversy I've seen surrounding Poettering has
been due to people resisting the kind of change he has championed. I
don't remember seeing much about him being "difficult to work with" in
any sense that would make it hard to contribute to systemd (though not
much to the contrary either).
