Unfortunately, the problem was that I didn't (know I) have a decision to make 
regarding systemd or SysV.

My decision was   do I keep my system up to date (which it wasn't) or not.  I 
am sure that I am no different to 90% of sysadmins who don't read all release 
notes before every 'yum update' run.

I do have to concede that the update did update a great deal of RPM's and 
probably some by a number of versions.  This no doubt is the reason I now 
have a reasonable sized number of changes I need to deal with (including 
keep_environment in EXIM, and journals moving on Dovecot )
