I don't agree. Many people in this list voiced concerns about systemd,
and don't want it installed on their systems. IMO, enough so that it'd
be worth a quick warning. Please don't take the average grand-mother who
just had her first computer 3 days ago as an excuse to say newbies don't
need to know. This does *not* work, and we don't do Debian only for
those. There's also experts that are running Debian, and it'd be nice to
tell them. *I* for example, would be happy to be warned about such a
change, and wouldn't consider it a waste of time.
