I don't think your response was called for Scott - whether you agree or not
with the suggestion doesn't make it any less relevant.  To say it is
off-topic is ridiculous, it is absolutely relevant to Ubuntu development and
was something Diego wanted to point out as a potential option for Ubuntu in
the future.

That's rather unrelated to Ubuntu development.  Ubuntu has taken it's own
decisions on init systems for some time (it wasn't in this decade that
Ubuntu last had a release that used sysvinit).

Please stay on topic.
