How to Crash Systemd in One Tweet

Gnome and developer hours available basically.

With Gnome yanking out consolekit support in favor of logind, and logind being part of the system package (not only is everything in the same git, they are all in the same src tree! When the LFS team shifts to eudev because extracting udev from the larger systemd source ball is too much effort you know something is up.) not moving to systemd becomes a hard sell.

Frankly the whole consolekit/logind thing seems overdesigned and aimed squarely at reproducing Microsoft's Active Directory. Is some corporate admin wants that, let him enable it. There is crap all reason for shipping this on every distro unless you think every last of your users are idiots (oh wait, Gnomes already do...).
