Just to make sure we agree on this: do we want to install dbus > in a base system without the standard task? It's not very big: 1MiB > installed files.

Running 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?
