Ah yes. E-busy. Just uploaded 'prevent-systemd'. Whilst it's sat in NEW, you can get it from:
i.e deb http://wookware.org/software/repo/ sid main
You get a choice of 'prevent-systemd' which stops it running as init
but allows the -shim and libpam packages so that logind and the like
will work. Or 'systemd-must-die' which conflicts with everything
systemdish. There may be a need for an intermediate package too, but
lets see how this goes for people.
