 - Don't uninstall systemd-libsystemd.  It's perfectly safe, even on
   non-systemd systems.  emacs needs it.  lxpanel needs it.

 - Don't use `pacman -Rdd` commands unless you really know what you're
   doing (I'm aware that until recently the OpenRC wiki page said to
   do that.  That was foolish and reckless of whoever wrote that to
   recommend that people do that.)

Happy hacking,
