So Upstart gets completely removed or is it really just the init-part
(upstart-sysv) that gets removed so that Upstart continues to work in
16.10+ besides systemd to run legacy jobs? Otherwise I have to migrate a
few custom jobs to systemd before Ubuntu 16.10 gets released in october.

  drop upstart-sysv

Status in upstart package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm using Ubuntu 16.10 dev with init 1.33ubuntu2 and I'm noticing that
  it does now pre-depend on "systemd-sysv" instead of "systemd-sysv |
  upstart-sysv". Since init is essential and upstart-sysv conflicts with
  systemd-sysv this means it is not possible to install Upstart in a
  sane way anymore.

  In case Upstart is not supported anymore maybe all related packages
  should be removed from the yakkety repository then (since Upstart
  can't be installed anymore with apt for the reasons above) to avoid
