Sorry to shock you. A cup of tea works wonders in such situations.

Sounds like, doesn't it? Let's be practical and see how how a screen in
d-i could present an init system choice to a user, particularly having a
new user in mind.

Here is my first suggestion:

   You are about to install an init system. Please choose

	1. Systemd
	2. Sysvinit
	3. Upstart
	4. A. N. Other

		1, 2, 3, 4?

Feel free to criticise and improve on it.
