9 I'll drop this, I've made my peace:
11 * adding another configuration file is inconsistent with every other
12 openrc service
14 * having two configuration files is confusing, since it looks like one
15 of them just doesn't work if the other is populated
17 * two code paths to maintain, and you'll eventually want to deprecate
18 the consistent /etc/conf.d location (more news items...)
20 * appropriating someone else's file like we did with LINGUAS can
21 cause problems if they decide to change its meaning
23 * handbook and other documentation updates need to happen
25 * no benefit put forth so far, other than that it's the same file that
26 systemd uses, which is true but not beneficial as far as I can tell
