libelogind0 Provides: the libsystemd dependency:

apt show libelogind0 Package: libelogind0 Version: 246.10-1debian1 
Priority: optional Section: libs Source: elogind Maintainer: Debian 
Ecosystem Init Diversity Team 
<debian-init-diversity at> Installed-Size: 692 kB 
Provides: libsystemd0 (= 246.10)


Asking the systemd maintainers to upload less often is also unlikely as 
a) regardless updates should hit sid soon and b) they haven't been 
exactly forthcoming to alternative init systems

Let's hope the newer elogind releases soon.
