I'm not sure the current "linperialism" of systemd nurtures diversity in
the OSS ecosystem, rather it's "go our way or go home". Don't expect to
be able to disable systemd-resolver any more than you can turn init back on.

Seems to me systemd might go about its business better as a framework
existing implementations can plug into modularly than trying to
re-invent every last wheel.
