That's of course something to think of. I really don't know how Red Hat works
internally, but I would *speculate* that some rough strategic line is
conveyed to the team. On the other hand, there are lots of indications that
it is just LP (if looking closely, what I have done the past two days ;)).
HOWEVER, given the fact that this is so tied in into systemd, this alone is
probably a selling point (and this tight integration is probably one thing
that I really don't like about the whole idea ... it feels a bit like
becoming locked in on the whole set of technology).
