Ok, it seems that wherever I sent my previous note about how I thought this
should be fixed, it didn't actually manage to go to the bug log.  Sorry
about that.

While I think the Depends: systemd should be dropped (via a split of the
systemd package), that's not required for fixing the present problem.  That
can be addressed by having gnome-settings-daemon Depends: systemd,
systemd-shim | systemd-sysv.

Would the GNOME maintainers be willing to upload such a change?  Or would
they be ok with me NMUing gnome-settings-daemon for it?
