I really hope systemd will soon be able to be co-installed with sysvinit-core 

Here is another reason why:

Re: Bug#755989: cfdisk: german help page strangely formatted

(In addition to NFS mounts broken with systemd currently.)

Sure I can go through setting up chroot for that, yet I really think if my 
work requires changes in other packages and the recent systemd changes do 
require this kind of work, I *help* with these changes, instead of uploading 
my changes to unstable *before* the other packages have been fixed.

Especially if its such an disruptive change with all kind of side effects.

I only package some quite easy packages so far and I know its a lot of work to 
do good debian packaging, a lot more so with complex stuff like systemd. I know 
upload has been announced five month ago or so. But still…

I know I will hold back systemd until this is resolved. I am not yet going 
systemd only. By trust in systemd is not deep enough to do this on production 
systems. Yes, unstable is unstable, but… but putting in onto selected 
production systems for testing allows me to test stuff without investing a lot 
of extra time for setting up and using test systems.
