| I believe we need to come up with a way where most or all package
| maintainers (perhaps those handling kernel events and early boot stuff
| should be expected) only need to maintain one boot setup for their
| package, and this boot setup should be used by all the different boot
| systems.

That would mean limiting each init system to the limitations of the most
limited init system, which would be a sad state of affairs.  Also, I
don't believe there's a 1:1 correspondence between the semantics of all
the different init systems, making this a very hard if not impossible

UNIX is user friendly, it's just picky about who its friends are
