This is usually not a good idea, as apt will pick a package at random if
none is installed yet. You should always list a real package or
default-logind first.

That said, I think, Ansgar makes a good point here.
Since you encode specific logind implementations in your pam config, it
would be better to be explicit, i.e. change that to

libpam-systemd | libpam-elogind (and maybe drop | consolekit, as this
package no longer exists in the archive).

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
