It is a philosophy, not an implementation. Read that again. It is like a specification. You can write a new tool tomorrow conforming to unix philosophy (and many have), and FYI Plan9 has adopted unix philosophy (actually its both way) and Rob Pike, who you are so fancifully quoting is a one of the main developers of Plan9. Go language from Google, is inspired by Plan9 semantics.
"That's why Lennart's projects keep being adopted by pretty much all major distros, despite "Unix philosophers" whining and bitching about it."
Yes, he is doing good work but don't jump the gun. Fedora (the home distro of systemd) is pretty shaky about fully adopting it. RHEL (where the money lies) is not even close. SUSE has delayed it. Ubuntu is going with upstart right ?
If you want to PR work, don't use LWN, use digg -- you will find plenty there who will buy your stuff.
