And yes, when the whole logic of service run/start/restart is now a part
of systemd, so no need to reimplement it again and again.


in early SuSE times, the manual had a *very good* initscript description.

We probably need the same thing for systemd. May be it's already done
(where?)

a question directly on subject: the init scripts are treated
differently from distro to distro (debian init 3, 5... are not the
openSUSE ones). Is it the same for systemd or is the interface
unified? this would be a great enhancement for people having to manage
different distros.

There are no native run-levels in systemd. It can have any number of
'sets of services', whicyh are called targets and have textual names.
The default systemd targets are the same on all distros.

Native service files have no notion of a SYSV runlevels, they hook only
into systemd targets.

The runlevel mapping in systemd only affect SYSV compatibiliy which will
go away over time. Some of the smaller, embedded-focused, or newer
distros already switched to systemd and dropped (compile switch) SYSV
support entirely. The concept of runlevels will fade out over time.
