Some more systemd-login0 dependencies:
apt-cache rdepends libsystemd-login0
(not only [linux-any])
gnome-disk-utility also depends on libudisks2-dev which depends on udev,
which is linux-any/built from systemd?, so this one might be impossible
outside linux anyway.
weston is Architecture: linux-any but
isn't it supposed to run on other architectures in the future?
Looks like systemd is creping in everywhere.
See also the problems with gdm3 not starting #724731, systemd-login0 and
libpam-systemd. That bug hit me too, on a brand new box as reported
