I see you want to start a discussion about systemd? I rather not
participate. The decision was taken by ctte, suggest to not keep
rehashing if you want systemd. It also feels too much like saying what a
project should have done, 10+ months too late.

You cannot have both installed at the same time. Meaning: software which
relies/uses new UPower cannot be installed at the same time as software
relying on the older one. There was a discussion @ Gentoo regarding

IMO, seems easier to recompile software not working with new UPower
without UPower support, if possible. But that's obviously not my
decision, I just want to highlight the extra work a default desktop
incurs. I do hope that XFCE as default desktop doesn't result in
crippling of more maintained software though :-P
