I never said that what I said was it's irrelivent the startup time of a 
service on a service platform which you should actually know yourself if 
are used to run servers in a proper production deployment not in your 
garage at back home.

An simple test to measure this reliably is to strip down the legacy sysv 
init script to the start up command only and have a strip down unit file 
to the startup command only.

Then time the startup of either.

I would be surprised if there was any measurable difference by all means 
since this seems so important to you test it.
