am I to stop them?

What this all boils down to, Linda -- and tohers -- is that if yu are so
fervently anti-systemd, so pre-sysv-init, then make teh effort to support the
sysv0init code base, keep it maintained and functioning as an alternative. Put
up or shut up.

Richard and the board aren't going to stop you if you are willing to put the
effort in to support this as an alternative. As he says, he'll encourage you,

It happened, as many of you anti-systemd-ers are so keen to point out with KDE3.
That's because there are people willing to make the effort to support it.

If you are that vociferousness, then act. There's no-one stopping you, this is
FOSS. The old code is out there. Put up or shut up.

Richard is too polite to say it, but what he does say amounts to the same thing.

This is FOSS.
If you don't like how it is work on an alternative.
Make it happen.
No one is stopping you.
You make it happen, show the commitment, deliver the stuff and the board will
support you.
Put up or shut up.

A: Yes.
