You have misunderstood Andi's point, I think. What I believe he's trying
to say is that the level of support for the default Linux init system and
the default init system on kFreeBSD or Hurd should be the same, and talked
about the same. In other words, if sysvinit is the default init system on
kFreeBSD, that should be supported at the same level and with the same
priority as systemd support on Linux.
