I don't agree on the 'attitude' part of your statement, but I do agree
that systemd should not be a hard dependency. Debian only recently
agreed that there should still be some init freedom.

It is depressing being pummelled into 'conforming'.

Lots of non systemd boxes exist (thankfully).

I have started to run Libreswan on some non systemd Devuan boxes
and it is an inconvenient pain to install & update now.

It is easier to install openvpn.....  :-(
