I have only minimalistic use of systemd so I don't know beyond things 
I read online.

accordingly, I haven't noticed how control is taken away except 
insofar as I am not familiar with its ways and means so there's a 
whole new 'language' to learn.

but as you indicate, this takes us into a wide and deep discussion of 
the philosophy and politics of systemd and of (l)unix. we needn't 
plunge into that here.

I think sometime I'll get all systemd-ed up on a laptop and get a feel 
for it.
