No, I think you got it backwards. Hiding "debug" is a bad idea, having
systemd abuse the hell out of it is even worse.

No, the correct solution was to have systemd use its own flag. Say
"systemd.debug", which I believe from froward reading my emails, Greg
has already sent a patch to do so.

That solution was even suggested in the BZ and was turned down with the
quote I had in my change log. That we don't own the generic terms, even
though it's our f*cking command line, not theirs!
