Devuan is great, but if upstream packages rely unnecessarily on systemd
for any reason, then those packages may or may not have a port that is
sans systemd.  An alternative competing option may be necessary if the
"bad" package cannot be used sans systemd as required.

What we are looking at here [at a minimum] is to remove dependencies
that are actually there due to laziness rather than actually being
required; which is quite different.  If there is a "real" dependency,
then that needs to be coded around to fix it, if it, in fact, can be
coded around... which would take more work (possibly much more work).

Kind Regards
