Python module for native access to the systemd facilities. Functionality is seperated into a number of modules:
* systemd.journal supports sending of structured messages to the journal and reading journal files,
* systemd.daemon wraps parts of libsystemd useful for writing daemons and socket activation,
* systemd.id128 provides functions for querying machine and boot identifiers and a lists of message identifiers provided by systemd,
* systemd.login wraps parts of libsystemd used to query logged in users and available seats and machines.
