I think our safest bet for now is to stay with SysV but spice it up a
little bit with LSB headers to allow parallel startup, like Debian is
doing it now.

The problem with how the LSB headers is that as it currently stands
(i.e., not counting prcsys or whatever), they're evaluated at script
install time, and to *correctly* handle them, you need to do it at
runtime, with information that's not in the scripts themselves. So,
to do this right, you need something new to at least replace /etc/rc.

Whether that's worth the effort is another issue.

I have one. Its 60% done, will be ready for rawhide after Fudcon if we decide to pursue it. See earlier in the thread.
