 for i in `seq 2 6` ; do systemctl enable getty@tty$i.service; done
on a system without dbus, would statically enable a getty on vt2-6.
So we could simply document this fact (in README.Debian, release notes etc).

The alternative would be, to bump dbus to priority standard, so it's
installed by default (on new installations). I think Simon wasn't to
keen on raising the prio of dbus further. I've CCed him for his input.

A third idea would be to have a generator, which creates the
getty@tty$i.service symlinks in /run/systemd/system/getty.target.wants
Implementing that in shell, would only take a couple of lines.

We should be careful though, to add yet another generator.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
