And that's exactly what this decision means, don't swap the init
system by accident. Nothing more but also nothing less. (I had a bit
of bad experience of people reading more in an statement than there
was in, that is why I wrote that. And I also fear that "also the
systemd maintainers consider this a bad idea" doesn't help too much in
avoiding that, at least at the moment.)
