but will you contribute to building the non-systemd packages, and 
working out how to retrofit old sysV init back into everything via 
patches, etc ?    every RPM that interacts with systemd will need to be 
'fixed' to do it the old way, with init.d scripts. repositories like 
postgres, EPEL, etc won't work, either, as their C7 packaged daemons are 
all configured to use systemd.
