Is anyone working on a mechanism to allow for install-time selection

I asked that question when Jessie debuted.  No one is.  Certainly not
Debian. The only suggestion I got was to build my own preseeded install
disk, but that's not the answer -- You still have to install systemd
first and convert.

This is probably because Debian is commited to systemd and going that way
further and further. The fact that today it is possible to convert to sysvinit
is because systemd migration is still in transient. Upcoming release or the
next one possibly won't even allow switching to sysvinit easily (or at all).

I think that will depend on whether there are enough people willing
to put in the necessary work to maintain two inits or not.

I'm willing to put in the time and effort.
