I object to "insidious". We have decided to use systemd as the default.
Any dependency on it cannot be 'insidious'; I also don't think that the
maintainer of the package in question did this with intent to annoy
people who don't like systemd.

If you don't like that depencendy, it's your job to offer a patch which
supports an alternative to that maintainer.
