I have the impression that systemd-shim diverts systemd files and you
don't want to have it installed if you're actually booting with systemd.
If this is accurate (I didn't check), then such a dependency change
would not be appropriate - the recommended way to install systemd is
still to NOT use systemd-sysv, while the above dependency would either
force installation of systemd-sysv or would incorrectly install
systemd-shim on systemd-booting systems.
