It's rather trivial to write an init script, and/or a systemd unit file,
which starts daemontools. Hooking into inittab isn't going to work with any
other init system, not just not with systemd.

You can start with the systemd.unit manpage. Searching the web for
"systemd howto write unit file" also yields some useful resources.

Well … systemd does.
