That's only when a non-Linux Debian port (GNU/kFreeBSD) first became a
_release architecture_;  it existed as a port since May 2003.  Hurd has
been an official unstable port since before that I think.  Debian is
also upstream to more unofficial ports such as Dyson that many of us
don't ever hear about.  So clearly, Debian has always been a very
portable OS;  taking a very Linux-specific direction such as systemd
would be significant.

It wouldn't be much of a debate if people didn't speak their opinions.
Others had already done so in the tech-ctte bug so I think he was
justified in challenging this.  And... if everyone was of the same
opinion, there probably wouldn't have been a debate in the first place.
