First thing I do on fresh jessie system is `apt-get install
sysinit-core`. There is also default mailserver, editor and other.
Does it mean I can assume that `$EDITOR' is default editor?

I do not have any systemd boxes, but I just apply
whatever patches other provide be for `runit-systemd`.

Then expect bugs with patches.

I hugely support idea of dynamically loading libsystemd.

Why does it matter, what systemd support or not support?

I'll better ignore this point.
