Subject: [DNG] Devuan with usr merge?

I migrated a Debian Buster to Devuan Chimaera by already install runit-
init into /target during Debian installation and then switching over
sources.list to Chimaera.

Debian 11 defaults to usr merge. So the installed system used usr merge.

I suppose Devuan is compatible and will remain compatible with that? I
think it would be necessary as well some users may migrate from buster.
Or one would have to find a way to undo the merge, but this I think is
quite error prone.

I like to avoid breaking the server VM by undoing usr merge, even tough
I prefer systems without usr merge. It is easy to do with systems where
I can use a Devuan ISO for installation, but for this system I had the
Debian Netinstall ISO and it is what it is.
