Re: [atomic-devel] Smaller fedora & centos images

Try fake runtime which provides systemd (fake one indeed).

The largest chunk of this is that the httpd RPM pulls in systemd, and that's
going to be true presently for a lot of our RPMs.  So that's a whole subthread to this.

It'd be possible to teach micro-yuminst to just ignore requirements
on specific packages like systemd, while still allowing anyone who explicitly
wants them to pull them in.
