Fedora seems to have been using systemd by default for the last version or two;
I believe they have working Trinity packages.  OpenSuSE has one (very minor)
bug filed against the KDE3/systemd combination:

Most of what systemd does is likely to be at a level of the system that's lower
than what Trinity needs to concern itself with.  systemd/sysv incompatibilities
seem to be mostly at the level of init script syntax, which I don't think we need
to worry about.
