This is what I'm really unsure of, so far. Every time I tried to
debate this with someone knowing Debian better than I do, we ended in

My opinion however is this: maintaining a *unique package* of version
controlled init scripts in Devuan is much, much easier than
maintaining a sysvinit script in each different package, forking it.

I'm not sure about pressing counter-arguments against this.
