you would know best how problematic is may be to keep all these
"foo-openrc" alternatives around - the one thing i would add is that the
other "your-whatever" meta packages off replacements for the essential
things that they remove - in the case of your-initfreedom that would
currently need to be everything that is now a *-openrc packages - but
would that not make it problematic to add other inits or replace openrc
entirely? - "anti-systemd" is not the same as "init freedom" - for
freedom you need to be able to move freely - this sounds like locking in
either systemd or openrc with no room for anything else

i like the idea of trying shepherd for example - but how would that fit
into this scheme? - if all non-systemd inits were lumped together then
there still need to be a slew of *-openrc and *-shepherd packages
analogous to their *-system counterparts - so maybe not much is gained
by this practically speaking
