Bug#1042082: Please take over udev SysV init script

could be another reason why it might be a good idea to package eudev for 

I more and more get why Devuan developers decided to fork on Debian. 
Unfortunately that is not the holy grail either.

I expect the necessary diff to make systems running another init system 
than systemd (which is not "just" an init system) continue to work to 
become bigger and bigger. That also increases the burden on the already 
overworked Devuan developers.
