In this way, we'd have only 2 init systems to take care of, and we could
start replacing init.d scripts by OpenRC runscripts *IF* there's a
systemd service file. Otherwise, we have to keep init.d scripts just in
case someone is running sysv-rc. So keeping sysv-rc would block progress
and force anyone to keep writing/maintaining init.d LSB header scripts.
