A call for votes in the Debian init system discussion

In a standard installation of Ubuntu 13.10 (in fact just the live cd under virtualbox), I'm counting 18 occurences of "expect " out of 96 files in /etc/init, with 6 of those being "expect daemon", and 12 "expect fork".

I'm also seeing 42 of what appear to be legacy init scripts in /etc/init.d, including a 364 line monstrosity to start udev (which includes mounting a tmpfs over /dev).

So: Yes, it's very much used in the wild, and if even Ubuntu hasn't fully converted to upstart in 7 years, I don't think there is any distribution that has.
