Plus if we choose Upstart or Systemd, then that's effectively what we
are going to do (I mean, we'd have to support 2 init systems, because of
Hurd & kFreeBSD).

OpenRC has been waiting in the NEW queue (targeting experimental, as
this is what it is right now: experimental!) for more than a month. It'd
be nice if someone from the FTP master team could review it, so that at
least others can try it. As much as I can tell, it works, though I'm
sure there's a lot of problems that I didn't see, and having it exposed
would help (so that others can fill bug reports).
