My apologies, I overreacted.
I'm fed up with repeated attempts to force components on the rest of the
system, but that's mostly a fault of Gnome's upstream, who are not even
malicious themselves but merely don't care about portability to other
systems. They don't get paid for making it work on Debian nor *BSD.
The way both Network Manager (twice) and now systemd are pushed in the
Debian packaging does leave a bad taste, but I should have limited
my (harsh already) words to merely "pushing an agenda". The word
"malicious" was really uncalled for.
