We should not support anything like this officially; it can be a
source of confusion and/or give off the impression that we haven't
fully switched to systemd and that it's OK to continue using
initscripts on a system.

Most Arch users probably have migrated to systemd by now; your
customers should switch too (if they haven't done so already).
