1. The *default* is what we are discussing.
The *default* for Debian has been sysvinit since - forever?
2. The systemd proponents pushed to make systemd the *new* default - a
massively major change from *all* previous releases since... forever?
3. A bug was opened to allow for the ability to allow a clean install to
be performed with systemd on wheezy, while sysvinit was still the default.
It should have been made mandatory that the systemd folks get this bug
fully resolved and functional *on wheezy*, *and* commit to maintaining
this ability in jessie, as a pre-condition to even getting the question
of a change of the default init system for jessi on the ballot.
Anything else, as I said, makes no sense.
It is *the systemd proponents* that wanted this change, so it should be
*on them* to do the work. Period.
