Steve and Colin have both been Debian developers for a lot longer than
they've been Ubuntu developers.  I would indeed be surprised to see Steve
vote against upstart, but that would be on the basis of its technical
merits as he sees them and as he's made clear in various discussions over
the years.

I think there will be a variety of opinions on the Technical Committee
about this, and I have no idea what the final voting would be.
