Did you deliberate add jessie entries instead of replacing the wheezy
entries? Does it change if you remove the wheezy entries?

apt should properly install systemd-sysv on upgrades and afaik is the
recommended method.

I don't see, how this is a bug in init and what we should do about this.
Can you elaborate why you filed this against init?

From my POV, this should either be reassigned to aptitude (maybe they
can do something about this) or to release-notes, documenting that
aptitude should not be used on dist-upgrades in the way you did.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
