Maybe basic would be a good idea? It doesn't have to work for all 
the initscripts out there, but at least a good percentage. Then one has to 
"fix" only a few packages with complex init scripts.

Could you upload your ebuilds and patches somewhere? Maybe in a 
project and/or as a portage overlay? I am also interested in systemd in gentoo 
and it would be nice, if I (and others) wouldn't have to redo all these steps. 
In addition, this could improve collaboration among gentoos systemd users.
