Interesting. I guess API changes are forcing their hand a bit as well
as people wanting to run RHEL on Apple crap.

I guess if they're going to lock into a version for the next 5+ (?)
years, 3.8 is not gonna work out and it's early enough in 7 to change.
I don't really know, but I doubt 7 is well deployed, yet. All those
sysops gotta learn systemd first.
