JFTR, we definitely plan to ship Grml *with* systemd, because that
is the way to go for us and also gives people remastering Grml even
more flexibility WRT service startups, independent from our default

If you're interested in a Grml flavor *without* systemd you're
invited to work on that, you might be also interested in picking up
file-rc as upstream respectively package maintainer (file-rc being
the init system we relied on so far and where no maintainer seems to
be present anymore, esp. once both Alex and me will orphan it).
