Any special one needs to care about ? Does that mean also user upstart
jobs will be supported by this ? 

BTW: with that version you can easily kill your machine by creating a
user upstart job and start that by that user :) 

Also if its supposed to support user upstart jobs, it should be more
clearly be stated how to expect that should work. If not you should
remove the details about that from manpage.
