I am a minimalist - I like sysvrc as it is today and i dont like
the "i can build a daemon which replaces most of the userspace and
runs at pid 1". Name it "userspaced" - link gnome and libreoffice
against it and be done.

So yes - i am one of the Debian users who'd like to run a minimal
as possible init and i'd like to have the choice.

I dont care about boot times or dependency based booting. I boot my
desktop/notebook once a month and servers more or less every couple
of years.

sysvinit has done that for me for approx. 30 years and i really dont
see the need to change it. 

I like to quickly change init scripts by writing shell code in them, 
disabling portions of environment checks or preparing environment
before start.

The more dependencies and functionality you put into systemd
the more i run away in disgust.


PS: For me the systemd feels like DJB dropping of qmail and telling
everyone that its the _only_ mail system everybody should use.
It was fine in a way - it had new concepts - but it was a horrible failure.
