Sysvinit --> Upstart?

I just want to start a discussion, if it would be meaningful to replace Sysvinit with Upstart ...

Here are some points for discussion:

  1. Old bootscripts can still be used (like Ubuntu did).
  2. The LFS user will learn something about old techniques (runlevels) and new techniques (event based booting) at the same time.
  3. Upstart is more modern than Sysvinit (and it is under active development).
  4. Some distributions already use upstart (Ubuntu, Fedora) or will use it in future (openSUSE, Debian).

What are you thinking about that?
