These particular changes would make my decision even more difficult, but
wouldn't change it.
More major changes, like adding features to eliminate the need for
non-descriptive shell fragments, and moving to a primarily dependency
based model from an event one would completely reduce the technically
superior position that systemd has, in my opinion.
