This is a sad state of affairs as this makes all packages depending on 
libsystemd0 currently uninstallable. I was setting up my new machine 
yesterday (with openrc and sid) and

even firefox or thunderbird are uninstallable because the depend on 
packages depending on libsystemd0. imho this would warrant a grave bug 
since those are breaking changes

but since the majority of users/developers have settled on systemd 
that's of no use. I hope consolekit2 becomes the drop-in replacement.
