Status of upstart in Debian?

Hi folks,

there was a flurry of activity on this list in November about migrating 
to upstart, but things have been very quiet since then. Is anyone 
actually working on this for squeeze? Is anyone planning to work on it 
for squeeze+1?

Personally, I would be more interested in an implementation without all 
the compatibility layers formerly proposed on this list, i.e. provide 
both upstart jobs and init scripts for all daemons etc. in Debian, and 
allow administrators to install whichever program as /sbin/init that 
they prefer. Would anyone else be interested in working on that?
