Since debian-devel is the perfect place for bad comparisons: you’re
saying that those wanting to replace cars by teleporters would have to
worry about traffic lights and speed limits.

The current state of upstart in Debian is a reflection of the upstart
maintainers' respect for Debian and desire to not destabilize the
distribution by triggering an avalanche of package conversions that could
quickly take us past the point of no return for bit rot of our init scripts.
If there's a consensus in Debian that we should just push it in and Damn The
Ports, well, we could certainly do that.
Alternatively, instead of thousands of words being wasted in this thread,
interested DDs could help with finalizing the Policy change for how upstart
jobs should coexist with sysvinit scripts on the system.
