Perhaps an existing definition like Upstart's could become that?  We'd
want proper documentation and some reassurance it won't change
drastically.  Upstream might be open to suggestions for improvement.
Any thoughts?

Then try to add support for it wherever it is easiest to do so, like
OpenRC (seems to be rather simply designed, ought to work on all ports,
and is under a free license without CLA).  It just depends how much
functionality Upstart has, that most packages really need, which OpenRC
doesn't already have.

(The GNOME logind issue would have to be handled anyway for Upstart to
be considered.)
