Note that I think as currently implemented it won't really be
functional: the systemd-sysvinit package, which is currently obsolete,
doesn't *just* make systemd the default init system, it also contains
some stuff that's vital to systemd's sysv compatibility, AIUI. I think
Lennart will need to push a systemd-sysvinit package with a newer NEVR
(so it's not obsoleted) which includes the sysv compatibility but
*doesn't* make systemd the default init system, or something like that,
before it'll be practical to run systemd as an alternative to upstart in
