Some packages need a bit more love, especially when the sysv init
scripts did more than just starting / stopping a service., e.g.
creating / migrating databases.
You need to convert that functionality to separate scripts, put those
somewhere (/usr/sbin? /usr/libexec/package?), decide whether to let
the user start them manually (which is a big step back in user
experience), or let systemd run them e.g. via ExecStartPre, and test
the whole thing. And then debug and test again. Not a 5 minute job.
Just my 2ct
