Operator overloading in general seems like one of those "obviously bad choice" kind of things!

Yup, nonsense like:

int i, j;
real x, y;
compl z;
x = i / j;
z = x / y;

Bloody operator overloading.

Then you don't know Debian either. 4583 packages depend on "systemd" - see

Apparently I know a shit more about Debian that lkcl does. He claims those are packages that depend on libsystemd0, which largely exists to make sure packages don't depend on systemd. And he gets it wrong!

Just take the first example on that list, "0ad":

# apt-cache show 0ad | grep systemd
[ crickets ]

If you want to know what depends on libsystemd (but why care?)

# apt-cache rdepends libsystemd0 | wc -l

Alarming? Not.
