At least logind, timedated, hostnamed, localed, the boot control
interfaces. With a very widespread level of failure depending on the

Because it needs logind.

There are solutions for a non-systemd init. They are technically wrong,
but they are realistic (basically it means using logind v204). But there
are no realistic solutions for having GNOME support multiple init
systems in jessie.
