I require a Python application (Plinth) that currently manipulates SystemD
to work with SysVinit.

Is it reasonable to assume that the 'service' command that transparently
handles both SystemD and SysVinit found in many Distros could be expanded
to work with other Init systems ?

The application could call the Distro provided 'service' command which
would then perform the correct action for that specific Init system
whether it be SystemD, OpenRC, Runit etc.

I realise this is not totally straight forward due to the broken nature of
SystemD which requires special handling in some circumstances. I am also
assuming other Init systems are not so broken.
