Solutions-looking for problems  thus over-engineering and control seems to be 
the characteristics of  this current era.
Take grub2,  its seems well nigh impossible to manually create a grub.cfg.  A 
convoluted  epistle is autogenerated.

As for systemd, I am hoping to learn it to hack into it.
And I still remember devfsd being bullied and frozen-out for udev.

But Consider bsd-style bootscripts in an elegant scripting language like 
python ?

with all the bullying surrounding systemd  I would not be at all   surprised 
if soon a group  emerges with such.
