-> I (and others) have asked for this a few times.  In general too many
-> people complained about changing the status quo.  It is rather easy to
-> change your getty (although you can NOT remove agetty package).  Simply
-> edit your init tab to have mingetty rather than agetty.

just mark getty to be removed and run

dpkg --remove --force-remove-essential 

as i did on all my debian machines :)

and I also vote for mingetty being std. package instead of agetty
