systemd and its components can re-exec themselves, that's not the problem.

The problem is that along with systemd we're changing a lot of the
supporting infrastructure ("we" here is Upstream, for the most part).

Keeping old low-level interfaces around just to avoid logging out or
rebooting may or may not be something we can do easily. While I'll
certainly be happy to be able to dist-upgrade without a subsequent reboot,
if it turns out that this is not going to be easy to achieve then so be it.

For Zurg (Jessie+1), we're likely to switch to Wayland. How do you plan to
do *that* without forcing at least a re-login?
