Re: I'm guessing that Devuan might [not] be able to use the Debian kernel?

Besides... there is likely a copy of the systemd binary renamed to init in /sbin (and sbin -> /usr/sbin in those silly distros these days)

Also, it's more that the kernel CAN be configured with a different default init path (something other than "/sbin/init") but it doesn't mean that a distributor IS doing that. I'd be surprised if Debian would break that convention.
