As much as I would like to see systemd as the default in Debian (and have switched to it on my Desktops), I see two show stopper issues:

* Needs to work (somehow) with other applications (including not in Debian) that need to manage cgroups. In Debian this would include lxc.
* See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=721775, seems to have the systemd maintainers stuck.

If I had to change back from systemd, it would be, reluctantly, due to one or both of the above.
