I thought I did, sorry. I would rank those options below FD for any init
system other than systemd. I'm still unsure how to vote option L with
systemd. I'm not certain whether it would be better to adopt systemd with
a bad package dependency model or adopt upstart with what I think is the
correct package dependency model. It's a rather annoying decision to have
upstart with a bad package dependency model just seems all-around awful
and worse in some respects than the status quo.
But regardless, I would vote S next to L in all cases; there's no
functional difference for me.
