I entirely am, and thats why such a hate package won't bypass me, unless
there is one of
 a CTTE decision,
 a GR forcing me, or
 the ftp team overruling me.

I wan't people to have the best system possible. Debian, via its CTTE
way[1], has settled on going the way to systemd. It is entirely insane to
add anti-systemd packages to the archive, especially as simple pinning
from a local admin has way better effects, should they want to keep it
out. Should people want to keep it out of their system they are free to
do so, but any kind of no-* package is an abuse of the archive.
