I guess it is handy to track the big changes and really ensure everyones
aware with the change. I am planning to make GNOME depend on systemd,
not sure if that should be another feature or not.

This I really want to add:

There is also stuff we can steal from Fedora. Stuff that I found

Possibly controversial:

Also, with latest NetworkManager, it seems you can do pretty advanced
network configurations (lacks UI). The UI is planned for GNOME 3.6.
However, seems that loads of Mageia users have issues with
NetworkManager, so not sure what to do. Perhaps safer to wait a year and
hope that other distributions solve the bugs?
