Bug#765803: Status of prompting / notification on upgrade for init system switch?

Since when did systemd actually handle these correctly?
I've generally found that systemd will give me a serial console only if
the kernel console is that serial console.
I've found that if I manually enable a serial console but have the
kernel console  go somewhere else, I end up with a system I cannot log
into when I  upgrade to systemd.
This has been no end of frustration and I hope that your check correctly
prompts in this case even when  the line I generate is exactly the
same as a line generated by the installer.

If it's gotten better and I'd actually get a console in that case,
that's of course fine too.
It should either let me know I'm about to hurt myself or work:-)
Either behavior is fine.
