Could you point at these bugs?

Have you tried using rc-status? Or do you mean restarting crashed daemons?

I thought everyone claimed (including systemd supporters) that this was
a "teenager side effect" which we didn't care much about.

Isn't this the role of udev?

I don't agree with this view, and I believe that indeed, you
miss-understood. This wiki page (which has been posted here before)
doesn't agree with your view either:


Reducing OpenRC improvements to only the syntax of init scripts is just
not right. Cgroups support and the rc-status command alone are nice
features that you discarded/forgot/didn't know about.
