For the committee's information, this is now in place in unstable and
will hopefully be in testing soon (unblock request: #774939).

Indeed, it seemed most appropriate to provide boot entries for any
installed alternative init daemon, so this will also for example be
usable for users considering a migration to systemd but wanting a
convenient way to test it out first.  Given the existence of grub-reboot
which allows changing the default entry for only the next boot, this
potentially gives you a fairly reasonable way to try things out even
