I'm looking forward to your patches for the proprietary HP and Dell
daemons that are used for monitoring the health of various hardware

(Sure, they might not be packaged for Debian, but adopting an init
system that doesn't deal with double-forking would be much, much worse
than adopting one which is Linux-specific for our Linux ports.)
