[arch-general] Alternative init system proposal

I feel it pertinent to point out that a different rolling-release
distrobution ( http://www.voidlinux.eu/ ) does not use systemd, openrc, or
sysvinit. Void Linux uses runit exclusively, and thus patches projects like
KDE4 and Gnome3 to work without systemd (I don't mention KDE5 since nobody
has cared enough yet to put in the effort).

It is possible to run a modern linux distro without systemd, still be user
friendly, and have reasonably updated packages.
