system and service manager

systemd is a replacement for sysvinit. It is dependency-based and able to read the LSB init script headers in addition to parsing rcN.d links as hints.

It also provides process supervision using cgroups and the ability to not only depend on other init script being started, but also availability of a given mount point or dbus service.

Installing the systemd package will not switch your init system unless you boot with init=/bin/systemd or install systemd-sysv in addition.
