Suite66 Retirement

Support for the 66 init system (also called suite66 here) has officially been retired. The primary reasons are the lack of maintainership (the previous 66 maintainer stepped down) and the significant overlap with other init systems. For now, all suite66 packages have been moved to the universe repo where they will remain for some unspecified period of time before being removed completely. Current 66 users are encouraged to switch to another init as soon as possible with s6 being the recommended choice for those who want something similar. Check the wiki for a brief guide on switching init systems.
