Unlikely. As pointed out, systemd uses many Linux specific
APIs […] That said, git supports branches and rebasing quite
well, in case people really want to do a port.
If folks want to implement something similar for other
operating systems, the preferred mode of cooperation is
probably that we help you identify which interfaces can be
shared with your system, to make life easier for daemon
writers to support both systemd and your systemd counterpart.
Probably, the focus should be to share interfaces, not code."
So upstream does seem to be interested in cooperating with developers
for other platforms, though not in maintaining the resulting code.
For what it's worth.
