We found a scalable approach anyway, and if we can support 5 at pretty
much the cost of the 3 we really want to support, then we should go
for 5. And thats exactly where my approach aims at: identifying common
requirements of init systems, to see how we can make the work of
writing proper/efficient init scripts for all of them a bit easier.
