The reason why I went for stating (twice) that my GR doesn't alter the
TC's choice of init system rather than reaffirming is that there might
be people who are unhappy about the choice but content to live with it
- and I'd like not to cause those people to vote against my GR. So I'd
be happy with changes that made it even clearer that I don't intend
to change the default (though, as I say, my text says so twice
already), but not things that may alienate those who don't want to
sign up to "systemd is great :-)".
