Portability of PID 1. Hmm. Let's see. That would be the PID 1 that's unique on Mac OS X, Solaris, uses BSD semantics on the FreeBSDs. That portability? And the shell scripts it relies on which expect different shells on those platforms.
I guess your definition of portability is formed under some parallel universe where PID 1 and init scripts are portable. They haven't been in this one since BSD split off.

The fact you think this honestly makes me wonder how much server admin you've done.
