Please do _not_ do that. There are enough people who do not want
systemd on a server. And pulling in a backport of an init system just
for getting SSL certificates sounds very disproportionate.

Well, certbot works fine on Sid without systemd either, so there
should not be much to do to get that. At least /etc/cron.d/certbot

It probably suffices to not install /lib/systemd/system/certbot.timer
and to remove the "is systemd running" check from /etc/cron.d/certbot.
