Overpopulation is self-adjusting. It's not pretty, famine, war and diseases comes in to play, but it is still self-adjusting.
We are not going to see the end of the world because of it.

As the technological level of a civilisation increases, the birth rate decreases. So population does tend to be seld adjusting.

Here is what I think will happen:
        At some point Poettering will piss off Linux enough to get him banned from submitting to the mainstream kernel.
        To deal with the problems of no active maintainer of systemd contributing to the kernel, Linus will write his own boot system.
        This system will work better then the sysinit system, but not be anywhere near as onerous as systemd.
        Peace will return to the linux landscape.
