It's easier, simplistic even, to replace systemd as the init (with
sysvinit or runit-init) in Stretch than it was with Jessie. I
know. I tried it. jessie required manual configuration on numerous
files after the appropriate components where installed even if you had
no intentions of removing systemd. And then, there were problems.
Some people reported systemd init would be "reinstalled" after a basic
update/upgrade, or installing an app with a systemd dependency. With
Stretch, this doesn't seem to be the case even with a dist-upgrade.
