I'd prefer to leave it in and have anything systemd does install its own
version in preference.  The site-functions directory appears before the
distributed functions in the path.

As individual completion functions sit on top of the completion
system and don't provide a general API, they can be licensed
more freely than core components, where the depenencies would get
complicated (we could remove _systemd with no knock on effects, though I
don't see any reason to).  It's up to the author how they do it.
