There are teams who either volunteer or are payed to support different
parts of openSUSE, such as the different desktop environments. If a
group of systemv enthusiasts wants to step up and provide long-term
support for systemv, as is currently being done e.g. with KDE3, I
suspect this would be possible. The problem is trying to make the
current team do two jobs when they already have enough trouble just
doing one.

AFAICT not much effort has gone into sysvinit in the last years,
so I don't see why you think it would be hard to maintain it.

You can only say that if you stayed out of distribution development.
A lot of effort was put into keeping the sysv system working. The
command parsing /etc/inittab might be small, but all the scripts
and commands called from there are obviously a lot to maintain - and
are 99.8% SUSE only and not shared with other distributions.
