Push Trinity into Debian is a crappy idea, all they would do is sew in 
systemd, that's all upstream is getting paid to care about.

Devuan is looking at Trinity as an alternative to XFCE and the direction 
Trinity should be going. Devuan is as a alterative to the Blob, more and 
more people are looking for an alternative and they will be looking at 
Trinity too.  Plasma suks and Systemd suks, they are married to each other.
