Sysvinit does it's job just fine. I see no real reason to switch to
upstart when we already have Sysvinit. But as others have mentioned, you
may try Systemd. Also, just because other distributions embrace upstart,
it does not mean Arch needs to follow in the same path. Arch should
continue as it has been without following and/or trying to be like
*other* distributions. :-)
