So if udev (maintained by systemd upstream as part of the systemd
sources) would ever get a dependency on systemd being the init
system, that should be fine even when the decision of Debian
was to support multiple init systems?
 I am not assuming bad faith by systemd upstream. But if there ever
is a technical advantage in making udev depending on systemd being
pid 1, it might be a reasonable option for systemd upstream to add
such a hard dependency to udev.
