Well you're certainly right, Dirk, that one launchd plist for all of
Gentoo would be easier than distributing a plist per daemon and
worrying about where to put it. We'd lose some of the functionality of
launchd, but it's probably a win for non-Darwin prefix users if we
work on maintaining init.d scripts.
Is the problem with the runlevel not getting reset to do with your
launchagent being fire-and-forget, with no reboot-time hook?
Perhaps we could write a small application to stay resident and
respond to launchd, shutting daemons down cleanly on reboot.
