sysvinit is in a split PKGBUILD with sysvinit-tools which is a depends
for systemd-sysvcompat.  As sysvinit-tools needs to stay in core, so
does sysvinit as we can't have split packages in different repo.  So
sysvinit will need to remain in core unless we decide to remove the
initscripts package. In that case sysvinit won't be necessary anymore.
