I doubt that this will work in the near future (jessie +1).
Debian/Devuan WILL NEED an `udev` alternative to keep `sysinit-core` working.
Sooner or later, there will be no more `sysvinit-core`, `upstart` or
whatever, because `systemd` guys engulfed `udev` and they are change
it to make sure it will only work with systemd = PID1, this sucks,
_this is extortion_ (kind of). Everybody that falls for that, will
Devuan will need something like `eudev` to succeed.
It is freaking unbelievable that Debian is now following RedHat after
all we achieved during those ~two decades, by ourselves.
I'm not against `systemd` itself, I'm against the lack of freedom to
choose whatever init I need/want. Systemd is here, fine, but as an
option ONLY. Well, no.
Jessie isn't Debian.
Devuan IS (will be) what we know about Debian! Waiting to see Joel
joining Devuan... lol
