Welcome aboard!

but over on the CentOS list I'm on, migrating from init system to
systemd isn't for the faint of heart as I understand it.

There's more of a culture of upgrade rather than reinstall in Debian
than in CentOS and family, in general. The systemd upgrade was handled
very well and was seamless for most people; however, someone upgrading
from such a long release ago is not something that will have been
thoroughly tested and it's quite possible that an old init script that
was modified (and therefore won't be replaced by package upgrades) could
come along for the ride and cause problems.
