For init :
If i remember well manjaro did it.

if i understand well how init config work it’s just a file in

but in certain case you have some compilation option for systemd
(transmission for ie) in that case just also add what needed in the
-init package.

Some debian packages already have dependancies like mysql | postgresql.
I don’t know how it s implement but we maybe just have to extend this part.

By implement this kind of packages we add
1 more flexibility
2 prevent fork and provide more handpower
3 people are free to choose and the access is easy

for others stuff :

on some complex software YES YOU GITLAB !!!
it can permit to provide more packages, more config but configs can be
"test" on more device and that config will be in the most part the same.

if we add use case they can be deploy and test in automate ways and
improve software.
