Re: How it should have been handled
"I am of the Devuan-type ... Debian with no trace of système d hacks"
Does Devuan ascii no longer include libsystemd0? The current stable release includes it, so it's difficult to claim it has 'no trace' of systemd. Personally I'm not too bothered about the presence of libsystemd0 on my Debian/sysvinit-core systems, but users of Devuan stable have little cause for smugness.
