neither do we.

while we do support running the next stable of live-* on the current
stable distribution (which is what i've said, not the implication to run
4.x alpha versions), we only recommend people using alpha versions for
development/testing purposes. that's why they are marked alpha and
currently in experimental only.

depending on the state of the alpha versions, they might be completely
broken, or perfectly working. if that bothers someone, any help is
appreciated to work on that (see below), or the respective alpha
versions should just not be used. 'workarounding' it by not uploading
alpha versions in the first place and keeping them in git only doesn't
make sense.

wrt/ #726536, clearly, the place to do development is in 4.x and not in
3.x (or even 3.x within wheezy), which is why i emphasised earlier to do
systemd stuff in 4.x. after all, we do not want to have a 3.x branch
having more features/fixes/$whatever than 4.x.

neither do i. of course, anyone is more than welcome to help/work on
these things (and more).
