The reason why people want to do an openrc migration right now is
because we don't know when we'll find something else to move to; make
it work with gentoo, make it work for everyone, iron out all the bugs,
and push it to stable. In all probability, and looking at our past
experience with pushing openrc to stable, it *will* take years. It's
too much work to maintain both baselayout-1 *and* openrc *and* find
something else to move to. It's best to move to openrc (which has
numerous benefits over baselayout-1, and has a maintainer now), and
then see what we can do.
