I'm not sure where this belongs, but I think we should also consider
what to do about third party products or packages that are unlikely to
upgrade to systemd or where an upgrade is not expected before our

I know this is difficult, but people who are using third party
products could list them. Examples I have myself - the HP Proliant
Support Pack and 3ware init-scripts.

As long as they use LSB init scripts - and I guess they do - they should
