15 You are understanding it wrong. The scene being worked towards is:
17 ebuilds for services will install openrc scripts in /etc/init.d
18 ebuilds for services will install unit files somewhere else.
19 Only one of those sets of teeny weeny files can be used at a time, the
20 set in user depends on the service manager.
22 There's an idea floating around that openrc could use systemd unit files
23 but it's still just an idea. If it becomes more than an idea, the files
24 in /etc/init.d may or may not be dispensed with. Either way it doesn't
25 matter. Unit files are unlikely to number more than 100 total, and are
26 likely to be smaller than 1 fs allocation unit in size.
28 bash's man page is considerably larger than all that all by itself.
