Yes.  So, we also have to set where we want the low bar.

Basically, anything that is not capable of doing _at least_ all that sysv-rc
can do is still missing required features.

We must first get to the point where the sysv-rc/startpar combination IS the
most limited initsystem (removing or fixing anything that is actually more
limited than sysv-rc+startpar).

After that, we will be better able to see the way forward.
