Just how useful these features are depends on the user. The usefulness of these features does not outweigh the fact that *I DON'T WANT BINARY LOGS*.
I wish you pro-systemd people would please quit telling me what I do and do not want. Systemd offers me almost no benefit but does disrupt many aspects of my systems *FOR NO BENEFIT TO ME*.
If this is good for you, please, by all means, use systemd. But leave me the option to not use it. You do not know what is best for me and I didn't ask for your opinion. I especially did not request that my options be limited by a group that is as controversial as the systemd folks.
