I wholeheartedly support this proposal. I would go further in this proposal and state that no software should require a specific init system in ANY pid. Of course, like many others, I would prefer Debian's default init to be almost anything other than systemd. In fleeing systemd, I have left Debian and am currently running Slackware. I won't use Debian again, unless I can do so without systemd. Kind regards, -D.M.
