Why can't systemd use cgroups for monitoring daemons (the new functionality 
that wasn't in any previous Linux init system) and run getty's in the

It seems that cgroups offer significant benefits for some uses but not for every

on behalf of users that are separate from the port listening functionality of 
the main daemon.
