Preventing systemd on Gentoo

With the latest upower upgrade portage may pull in systemd. If you are like me and think that systemd has grown beyond what it should do and you don't want it, do this:

/etc/portage/package.mask:
sys-apps/systemd
Then replace upower with the compatibility layer:
emerge -C sys-power/upower
emerge -1 sys-power/upower-pm-utils

Thank you! I really don't like systemd and the attitude of its developers. It just seems horrible all around, so thanks for helping me not install it on Gentoo!
