I have to agree with that statement, even as strong supporter of
systemd. There is nothing wrong with exploring different options, even
if they might not be viable in future (who knows?). And even if we
switch to systemd completely, OpenRC might be a nice option for
non-Linux ports to use or for possible other use-cases.
Also, I am certain that the SoC student will gain a lot of knowledge
about the init-process and the structures in Debian itself, which
mages this GSoC project a perfectly sane choice.
