We're certainly no-systemd on principle and TDE seems to have done a great
job of avoiding assimilation by the systemd Borg.  I have no objection in
principle to using some app from KDE 5 if we could make it work in TDE but
at this time there's nothing we need from KDE 5.

Devuan has been very helpful.  However Quagga is essential for our VPNs.
Stretch Quagga was systemd-only but they recently restored SysV compatibility
in Buster Quagga and that version works fine in Stretch / Ascii without any
need for backporting, and just in time for Jessie EOL!

I don't want to go on too long because this is somewhat OT for TDE.
