udev doesn't like systemd-shim

I switched to sysvinit by following the directions at http://without-systemd.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_remove_systemd_from_a_Debian_jessie/sid_installation
This seemed to work until I tried to install sshfs whereupon I got this:

E: /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/udev failed with return 1

Poking around, I found that /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/udev contained references to systemd. Re-adding systemd-shim didn't help.

Over in #debian-next@xxxxxxxxxxxx, I was told that I need to upgrade the packages udev and libudev1 to version 232-19, 233-4, or 233-5 because the existing package doesn't support systemd-shim.

Is someone working on getting this into Stretch before the official release?
