That is not an ad hominem attack.  Ad hominem would be dismissing the
opponent with 'but you are just an old fart'.

Many people seem to argue that 'we know the old stuff and it works
everywhere'.  The second point, 'it works everywhere' isn't really true
as there is a constant stream of bugs in init scripts and inherent
problems with the lack of real service control in sysvinit.  That leaves
'we know the old stuff' (and 'it mostly works on kFreeBSD').  And Marco
is attacking that first point.
