 As you have said the timescale for initscripts being replaced by
 systemd comes down to the challenges of maintenance and I guess this
 is a question for that day as systemd is obviously a moving target but
 as I would expect like ipv6 some people think systemd, event starts and
 parallelism and it's binary size are more mature and sane than I do
 (Of course without those users these things will have no chance of
 becoming mature, compilation bug free, improved, unix-like, secure and
 completely hackable in my eyes).

 I expect those maintenance challenges coem down to working for every
 package so can even an unmaintained initscripts package be kept for
 those of us who want to maintain just the scripts we use or do you
 expect openrc to be a better base to work from or do you think a
 switch to another tiny init binary distro to then be a better option?

Thanks, Kc
