I thought we had agreed that the TC resolution would explicitly state
that it would be overrideable by a simple majority.

None of Bdale's options do that.  Doing this with a later resolution
which might or might not pass the TC is IMO unacceptable.

I hope this omission in Bdale's drafts is an oversight.

Anyway for that reason, if for no other, I feel must vote as follows:

  FD, sysvinit, upstart, openrc, systemd

I choose this ordering because if we are going to make a
difficult-to-overrule decision - despite having clearly indicated that
we would not do that - it should be the closest to the status quo.

(Using the names rather than the numbers Bdale has assigned because I
find numerically ranking a set of numbers needlessly confusing.)
