I'm not sure I've seen anybody talk of it being a given (ie no other configuration is supported). If many devs want openrc to stick around indefinitely I'm sure it will remain supported.

I would think the intent would be to stay close to upstream as is usually the case with Gentoo. If they have integrations with 14 things than we should, and that shouldn't be horribly difficult since all the upstream projects would support them. That said, there is wisdom in only tackling a few things at a time and having 2 working integrations might be more useful than 47 non-working ones. Is there something in particular that is causing alarm with systemd? All I've seen is a package in the tree and some discussion. I'm sure there will be requests for various packages to install some files needed for integrations/etc. If anything is traumatic I'd be specific in stating concerns so that the root cause can be addressed.
