Re: bsd and systemd

I have bsdutils installed on a Debian Jessie system running sysvinit. The package depends on libsystemd0, not the full systemd init system. In fact, running sysvinit is officially support in Debian Jessie. You just have to do some work yourself.

Whether this will still be the case when Debian Stretch becomes stable next year is anybody's guess.
