grotesque monolith actively being exploited as a power play by its author
You wrote above, don't complain when people question you about it, or say that this is Slashdot style commentary. I also don't understand your response, is it an attempt at a better comment or not?
Now for what you're suggesting, you argue (as I see it) that 1) systemd is monolithic, 2) in evolution, it needs all to be replaced in one go and #3 adopting something can only be done if it can easily be replaced. For #1, suggest to read the article. For #2, just change individual components as needed. For #3, I disagree :P.
