Agreed on the "keeping our options open" part. But given that the
kernel is increasingly event-based, OpenRC seems to be a step
backwards. I agree that OpenRC would be an improvement over the status
quo, but migrating *away* from OpenRC later on would be a major pain
as we would have to support both LSB/sysvinit scripts and OpenRC
service descriptions for the foreseeable future.
