Make a change, reload your configuration, everything breaks. ifupdown2
is smart and will converge to the new configuration. Network Manager can
restart and minimize impact. AFAIK, systemd-networkd is as dumb as
ifupdown and does not know how to converge.

My point is that ifupdown2 was a possible successor to ifupdown but was
never adopted because written in Python. As netplan is written in
Python, ifupdown2 seems a far better replacement.
