The intent is not to do so in the final release, AIUI. We're only
keeping it around during pre-release, so that if we decide we need to
fall back to upstart for final release, it's easy to do. As far as I
know, the plan is to decide later (presumably after beta) which one
we're going with, and dump the other.
Making a big change like that _after_ beta seems like an invitation to
trouble, but I'll give the benefit of the doubt to you as the QA guy. So in
that case, the requirement could simply be that at the time of the beta,
they do basically the same things, or in cases where they do different
things, it is 1) intentional *and* 2) documented.
