Will they use upstart only to get the indicators started, or will there
be a much tighter integration (like gnome with systemd)? If it is only
the starting of the indicators we can start them like it is done now
using gnome-session autostart.


P.S. As Pantheon on Gentoo user/maintainer I'm in favour of not using
upstart. (Not wanting to use systemd is why I dropped Gnome.)
