A question about this: apart from changes such as those required
to accomodate systemd or the /lib to /usr/lib migration, _what_ is
actually involved in the day-to-day maintenance of initscripts ?
In other words, what sort of events would mean they need to be
modified ?

It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
