Not quite. The libsystemd.so.0 shared library on Devuan is
actually provided by the libelogind-compat package, as a symlink
to libelogind.so.0 from the libelogind0 package:

$ dpkg -S libsystemd.so.0
libelogind-compat:amd64: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libsystemd.so.0

$ readlink /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libsystemd.so.0

$ dpkg -S libelogind.so.0
libelogind0:amd64: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libelogind.so.0
libelogind0:amd64: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libelogind.so.0.35.0

Which, unlike libsystemd, does *not* depend on liblzma from xz-utils:

$ apt-cache depends libelogind0
Depends: libc6
Depends: libcap2

So Devuan is likely safe, at least with respect to that part of the
