The reactions to systemd-homed have predictably been, "soon there's going to be a word processor in #systemd", without these people realizing that:
1.) systemd is NOT a single binary, it's a project, an ecosystem of utilities. That's like saying to GNU; Why is there wget? I want GNU to compile stuff with GCC, why is GNU nano a thing?
Of course the goal of the GNU Project is to produce everything needed to have a libre OS - the goal of systemd is to produce everything needed to manage this OS.
@mariusor Well, it does seem to want to make it so that apps that don't have to wouldn't write all over the place. Initially this is primarily aimed at making home directories portable by apps not writing much outside of it. Strict XDG enforcement seems like the next logical step.
