Additionally, as Exim in Debian still uses SYSV init scripts, this would
probably work better if rewritten to work with systemd, which was
introduced with Jessie several years ago. I see more issues with "mongrel"
init scripts (scripts run using systemd's SYSV compatibility thingy) than
with definitions written for systemd in the first place.

I'll see if I can find the tuits for a proposed change to the package
maintainers!
