For what it's worth, I actually disagree with this.  I believe upstart is
technically unsuitable to be Debian's init system.

Now, the upstart maintainers are committing to implement a whole bunch of
new functionality in upstart to *make* it suitable if we adopt it, so
that's a situation that could change.  But, at the present time, I think
upstart is clearly technically inferior to systemd, and not in just minor
