I would be really happy if openrc supported systemd units. Or any other
good unit format but it's probably too late to invent anything here...

You happen to be wrong. systemd runs perfectly as non-pid-1. Part of
Lennart's well published plan for world domination is to use systemd as
a session manager, so it would replace gnome-session, etc. Lennart &
friends are currently pushing kernel patches to make it fully recursive
(such as being able to re-parent orphaned processes to the session's
systemd instead of the global one.

Good to know that I'm wrong. I didn't know they pursued world
domination too. I wonder how "kernel patches" go well together with
"being in an environment unknown to you, or that you cannot control at
all", though. Seems there is interest for it to support Prefix then.
Looking forward to patches and solutions to complement the challenges of
this year's GSoC task.

I think they only want to support systemd-in-systemd, not
systemd-in-random-init-system.

I think neither fits Prefix. So we're back at the starting position.
