I believe we should finalize the Policy update to allow packages to start
including optional upstart scripts (#591791, which needs more seconds),
write a similar Policy update for systemd, and then get some practical

That doesn't resolve the whole problem, but it does let people start doing
things instead of just talking about it and may uncover interesting data.
And allowing packages to include parallel upstart configuration with init
scripts that defer to upstart when it's available has the separate
advantage of immediately making life easier for packagers who want to
maintain the same package on both Debian and Ubuntu.
