I'm using sysvinit+jessie on my main machine. I expect shortly to
become a sysvinit+testing user. So please don't just bin sysvinit
support if there already is some.

I do now also have a systemd+jessie machine, and having both is useful
for testing breakage (like the recent
schroot/systemd/private-mount-namespace thing I mailed about).

After Stretch there may not be that many sysvinit users, but I think
that 2 releases is the minimum sensible period to maintain support for
such a siginificant change.
