  First of all, many many thanks for your work and for this short introduction!

One obvious question, but which is very important for me, is to know whether or not a portable version of these utilities is planned?

There are still some (sane) Linux distributions that do not plan on shipping with systemd -- porting systembsd under these distros would be a great way to maintain their independence.

How BSD-specific are these utilities? Do you think porting them to Linux would mean significant rewrites?

Second question: apart from logind, how would you rate the difficulty of writing these utilities?

Again, thanks for all the hard work!
