Many thanks for supporting us! We all look up to you and your magnus opus!

I have a great idea for a first project already! You could start by
integrating 'st' into systemd, tightly couple them with each other so
that none of them can be used without each other and making sure that
we depend on DBus as well. Because of the incompatibility with the old
'st' I think we should rename the systemd-integrated version of 'st' to
'STD'. What do you think???
