it's because we want a faster boot from our users ASAP.
As far as I'm concerned, "faster boot" is irrelevant. Using an init
daemon that actually does its job of supervising services, and lets us
get rid of most of the stupidity and boilerplate of init scripts, otoh,
I think supervising services and faster boot are nice. Faster boot is
nice for end users as well as for servers. The latter mainly because it
gives more time for actual response time in case of an intervention that
needs down time.
