Please don't spread FUD. Both systemd and upstart support the current
init scripts, and can be used as drop-in replacements for sysvinit (as
far as I understand OpenRC cannot, though). I can confirm that the
systemd package in unstable (which I've been using for months now) works
out of the box.
Sadly the point you are trying to make is painfully obvious.
