I spoke to soon.

While it seems to work fine (including installing and restarting rsyslog)
on first launch, a restart broke everything. Short version: you need to
upgrade systemd, e.g. using stretch repo:

The exact steps would vary depend on whether you use lxc or lxd, and
privileged or unprivileged. If you use privileged, it should be as simple
as running chroot and apt.
