I don't understand all of what you are saying here, but if you say that
shipping /etc/systemd/system in init-system-helpers will fix the
piuparts problems, then we can certainly add that directory to the package.

It's just that I was under the impression that the problem wasn't the
directory /etc/systemd/system itself, but the subdirectories and
symlinks in there which are created by i-s-h.
I don't see how shipping /etc/systemd/system in i-s-h would fix that and
magically clean up everything in there. That's all I was trying to say.


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