Thanks for your reply and for your time.
However I cannot agree with your conclusion: having some setting changed
only because I installed an unrelated package it seems me a bad
behaviour and definitely not a "minor detail". So please don't close
this bug.

I agree with you, that it is a problem of systemd and of its tendency to
force its "standard" everywhere. But it is its right to do so [1]. What
I am expected by debian package is to filter these issues.

I will highlight this also to upstream. But it would help me if you
don't close this bug.


[1] I repeat I am not arguing about the values, I am arguing that a
package which aim to replace the init must change a setting which aren't
related to the package functionality.
