That's true, you could almost always use init=/bin/ksh|/bin/zsh etc. and
have a largely usable system, more so than the in-built busybox but as
the reason is unclear at the moment, it would be wrong to point the
finger, however I guess many binaries would be segfaulting if it wasn't
systemds fault.

Heiko was a little over zealous likely because of abuse he has taken
in the past but now he is insulted when he has atleast had reasoning
in his words.

Divide and conquer tactics, how lovely. The theme continues.
