But they hurt users.

If we consider this argument then nothing will go forward, the number
of usecase scenarios become unmanageable and will be forever stuck if
we care about crap packages provided by someone else.

It pains me that you do not have pity on us users.


Systemd has and will have a mechanism to execute old style init scripts.
And I'm sure we'll keep this mechanism for quite some time. Also I
don't see a reason why we should drop this.

But the goal for openSUSE should be to deliver native systemd targets
for all services.
