Funny, my personal experience has been the exact opposite, including the
conversations that I had in-person at the last Debconf.

This is completely false.  I have no affiliation whatsoever with Ubuntu
and personally have no interest in using it.  Nonetheless, I think upstart
looks quite interesting

systemd also looks interesting, and I'm generally happy with either of
them as possibilities, I'm rather concerned by systemd's lack of interest
in portability.  The upstart maintainers have expressed considerably more
willingness to date to work with Debian on meeting our project's goals and
incorporating those changes into the upstream release.
