You might want to ease back on that one a little, it turns out that the
family have lived in Turkey for three years, and were not fleeing war.

'Our'? We all have different priorities.
OK, the language was dramatic rather than pathetic, but fairly
descriptive. All kinds of system software *is* being pulled together
under the 'systemd' badge, and inevitably will one day stop functioning

dispassionately. Maybe it's a good thing, but good or bad, it's worth
being continuously aware of.
