I've stayed out of this, but I'm afraid I'm on the side of Russ and Gary. I fear the change was pushed primarily because it was cute and offered an additional 100 parameters that could be set, not necessarily to answer a need identified in OS operation.

I will note that I agree that there is a lot to dislike about systemd
philosophically as well as in practice. It offers 99,980 options for doing
tasks that really need only twenty options, if that. I'd wager than the
vast majority of people who 'use' systemd never or ever will touch those
99,980 options. But that's the thing - you can live with systemd and do
everything you need and *you don't have to deal with the 99,980 other
options*. They exist, but that's it. Use them if you want.

Complexity is insecurity. Systemd is insecure by its design. That is why we hate it and want it to just go away. 

You're describing a belief system, not a rational system. But none of this has fuckall to do with gpsd, so, peace be upon you.
