I also agree that given that while the additional questions of how
packages are able to depend or rely on the default init system is
important, it is not necessary to resolve that question to determine
which system is going to be the default init system, as in no ballot yet
has anyone changed their D/U ranking on the basis of which of the T, S,
or L options were being voted for.
