But in reality, the set of git repositories forms a whole.  And if
gnome-settings-daemon doesn't support !systemd, then the whole doesn't
either.  So if you decide to delete this code from g-s-d, it makes the
work of anyone else completely pointless.

Broadly speaking, I don't think it makes sense for this to be up to
individual module maintainers as they please, because the result is

Now, this is obviously not a new debate.  One option which I'd like to
preserve at least is that !systemd platforms are able to build and run
GNOME in "basic window management" mode.  Basically the equivalent of
thin client/remote X display.

So we could say we don't support power management for example.  In that
case, you could support being compiled without systemd support (at
present), and just do nothing if it doesn't exist.  Or it could be
runtime detection.
