Agree, I have another solution, use Devuan like a base (https://devuan.org/)
Even Debian had hard times to decide which init system to choose. It’s decent to wish that the Linux Mint team is knowing what they’re doing, but it’s too much to expect them to offer all of the systems available as options.
This is an opinion not an idea and should be posted in the forums.
I do agree that systemd seems to be a particularly bad idea. IMHO although rc has its drawbacks, including slower start (considering that I have a boot time measured in seconds not a big problem) systemd sets the stage for the Linux version of "Registry mess".
