Yes, sorry. Flat battery - resumed from Draft and missed that.

Should have been:-
And always a reboot is necessary after installation - so a
preseed/late_command will allow you to boot for the first time into
non-systemd system.

preseed/late_command="in-target apt-get install -y sysvinit-core"

A simple bash script makes rebuilding an install CD to include that
preseed parameter a simple - quick process for those that want to use
the GUI install option.

I'm glad you asked.
No - I "presumed" that amongst the "lots" of experts so opposed to the
late-command option, at least one of them would apply Kenshi's patch
(which apparently works) to d-i. Was my mistake an assumption that any
of them would do more than demand? (have any of them even, including
one of the noisier posters on this list who commented in that thread,
done any of the bug-tested he widely requested?)

That I strongly suspect is correct - but not for the same reasons.
