  console colors are not correctly applied

Status in console-setup package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress
Status in console-setup source package in Xenial:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  At least on Xenial and onwards, our color scheme for the VTs is not
  being applied, since setvtrgb is not getting run on boot (it's still
  only an upstart job).

  Porting setvtrgb to a systemd unit makes the pretty colors appear, and
  I can get my debconf/newt prompts back with an aubergine background.
