*I* fail to see the good that such a package will bring the archive and
Debian. Not just for systemd but in general. It makes so much NOT sense
to install a package to not install packages from the same archive.
And IMO this is what a local admin should do with equivs, should they
decide they don't want a certain set of packages to come in at whatever
point later.

And should we open the archive for a series of "i hate $tool, i never
want it" packages, where do we stop? In theory we could end up with a
load of them.

no-gnome, no-kde, no-pulseaudio, no-whateverthehellsomeonedislikesnow

We currently have some 25k binaries on amd64, plus 20k arch all. We
should autogenerate a no-$whatever for all of em, i bet you find someone
against any one of them. Maybe except for libs.
