It's easy to add your own script to arches non systemd init system which
may even be a one liner if your in a hurry and a few more lines to add
pretty initialisation. Considering the author wishes all scripts to
disappear I am just wondering what the minimum required to be written
in a unit file is between the current init and systemd for a roll your
own or missing service.

Atleast systemd works eventually (after making multiple symlinks) and
gives complete info. Haven't spent long but I still haven't got
mythtv-backend to load after upgrading mythbuntu once. I'm thinking
I'll just add it to rc.local.


 Why not do something good every day and install BOINC.
