At this point it is no longer enough to just keep the old rc scripts.
Initscripts need to be maintained and an increasing number of packages
need to be altered to support both init systems. It would be quite some
work and you probably cant put everything into one single package
without affecting other packages.

I'd say you'll need a strong technical reason to do this. ATM I cant
think of any problem that initscripts solved but systemd cant.
