Well, as much as I know, CentOS 6 uses upstart, so I guess they wont
care much about it (maybe only for CentOS 5, but that starts to be old).
In this days and age, only Debian uses sysvrc, so I don't see any value
in upstreaming init scripts which nobody will care about except us. This
will considerably complicate the init scripts as well (check what OS we
are running on, check if lsb-base functions are there, etc.).
