Rather cheeky! :)

I've been using systemd on Fedora (F15, F16, F17) and it works very
well. I had an F15 dev box on which I had to mess around with rc.local
to get two nfs mounts to work. I now have six F16 and six F17 boxes in
production that are running just fine. There may have been many
problems with systemd on F15 but I'd *guess* (and could be
*completely* wrong but my search powers on Debian's BTS and RH's
Bugzilla suck...) that on F17 there are hardly more problems with
systemd as there are problems with sysvinit on squeeze.

Had Debian decided a year ago to transition to systemd (not taking
into account the difficulty of surmounting the opposition of the
"conservatives" who don't want to transition to anything, of the
kfreebsd and hurd ports, of the anti-RH crowd, of the anti-Poettering
crowd, etc), would it have been in a good enough state for a wheezy
release? Yes IMHO (especially since there'd be testing/unstable
testers and reporters to add to the Fedora users), certainly no for
many others... Just because it was first released as a distribution
default 14/15 months ago doesn't mean that it's hopelessly buggy.
