I say the whole issue could have been avoided if Debian's tasksel had a
single line:

[x] systemd

on its d-i menu.

Because Devuan is all about fixing regressions caused by "systemd
integration" that breaks things that used to work before. And you guys do
that by throwing away systemd support (just like the other side does by
throwing away sysvinit/openrc/runit support). That's an easier way than
supporting both, but doing it the hard way would be still drastically less
work than having a separate distribution.
