How on earth would anybody be able to make a decision if there are no
comparisons between the alternatives available? Throw a dice, rely on
gut feelings, or what? Since everybody is so damned biased in opinions,
I don't see any alternative to making a thorough investigation. This
could be a useful GSoC task. If case the "experts" approve that somebody
not senior or expert enough enough do the work. This would be much more
intersting than writing a systemd-to-initscript converter.
