I would hope that this would not be allowed by Ian's proposal until
uselessd is also in Debian. In particular, "work with one alternative

By `in Debian' in this context we probably mean `in testing and not RC
Frankly, while I'm not eligible to vote, isn't the real message that
most of us who object to systemd would like to see classic sysvinit

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
