And therefore, having this GR now shouldn't be a problem.
To me, it's perfectly fine to decide now that we don't want tight
coupling with systemd (and therefore, try to fix these issues when we
can), as long as we also decide that it's not going to delay the
release. And since it's the release team who has the decision power, I
can only see it happening the correct way.
