your methodology is sound. You're too kind to say but given the
"completion criteria" of both init V script and systemd unit file,
comparing their run times is a complete waste of time.

The same is likely to be true with any long-lived network service.

Thanks for steering the discussion towards something sane and productive.

Makes sense.
