Yes, but currently sysvinit is not used on Debian/Hurd and as I said,
the part that would actually allow one to use sysvinit on Debian/Hurd
has been deliberatly left out of this patch series as it depends on
some functionality that has been implemented recently by me but has
not yet been fully merged and is thus not yet available.

If this is merged and a new hurd package has been pushed to unstable,
I will send the remaining patch including the proper dependency
information to allow one to switch to sysvinit.
