Xfce and MATE do not rely on systemd, nor have they announced that they will only support it in the future.
Why spread FUD like this?
Dude, I am a GNOME release team member and I help out in a distribution. We handled getting rid of ConsoleKit. Guess what is the replacement for ConsoleKit? Now I mean rely in the same way as GNOME. Meaning: GNOME 3.10 at the moment runs on OpenBSD. OpenBSD doesn't have systemd. My repeated statements that GNOME doesn't require systemd/logind are accurate according to OpenBSD. But feel free to go continue claiming otherwise, though IMO it'll look weird.
I might be wrong on things or misremember, but usually I have investigated it at one point or talked to someone about it. Just saying, before calling me out and someone pointing out that you're wrong, maybe better to check a little bit. Though obviously I could and I am wrong sometimes.
