No, and that's why this is an issue very specific to Debian. But the
above examples show, that systemd (or upstart) can bring many useful
features and improvements to Linux platforms.
It'll be interesting which decision will be made. I'm sure this will
take some time. :) (At least this discussion seems to be mostly
complete now, it's time to test some suggestions and to test systemd
and upstart on Debian, which some people seem to prepare for.)
