I looked at that RAexec very early, just after it was commited, and I
understand that it requires running dbus daemon to operate. I prefer to
simplify operation chains, so that is really not an option for me to
rely on one more service to do simple job.
Did I miss something?

Anyways, upstart is gone from Fedora, and will go away from EL7, so that
all actually doesn't matter.
