I think the same. Apart from the, "its cool. it is an event based
framework", I don't see much value. and anybody who cares about
events, could also monitor and act with udev's help.
Today, on my typical laptop, boot is not the most important task. It
is better to have something well working, fixable (being mere shell
scripts and that's what your friend is also pointing). sysvinit serves
this purpose well.
imo it would be better to have an init system that could serve all the
platforms (more or less) that we care about.
