Hi there, Olav, thanks for contributing to the discussion,

So, I have a mild problem with framing the problem this way, when the
systemd maintainers position (which is perfectly fair) is:

from Tollef Fog Heen <tfheen@err.no> ([🔎] m261smjxwi.fsf@rahvafeir.err.no)

This means by adopting logind, we should switch init over to systemd,
otherwise a major package is using another major package in an
unsupported configuration (or at least in a way that the maintainer
doesn't wish to support)

Since the project (on the whole) is fairly divided, I don't think we
should trivialize this to "actively developed" vs "cruft" at this stage.

Much love,
