If you want to write the patch for multi-instance, don't focus on systemd. I
don't plan systemd migration anytime soon since current system works and systemd
migration would require systemd support on all platforms (not going to happen
for EL6 any time soon).

I already had had heavily ifdef-ed packaging system because of EL5 and it was
major PITA that caused some unpleasant bugs along the way.
