Booting a VM on such servers is nearly instaneous despite still using
shell scripts for network :-)
Anyway I do favor migrating to systemd.
As for NM, if we don't want to maintain both drakx-net & NM, we'll
have to work.
I can help, but we'll need someone on the NM side:
- what parts of NM to integrate into stage2
- how to integrate drakx-net code with NM
