libsystemd is not an init system. The init system is initd. The various
systemd components can be used for multiple tasks regardless of what
init system you actually use. But the developers of Devuan have decided
that systemd is inherently evil for some reason and that a variant of
Debian that doesn't offer systemd (this is the only substantial
difference between Debian and Devuan) would somehow be necessary.
What he is saying is that purging libsystemd like this makes it
impossible to even check whether or not systemd is actually there, which
inherently makes no one who develops a program to even optionally use
part of systemd care about you.
