musl libc is an alternative to glibc etc. We talk about the vision of
a new platform, so if this new solution would arise, then its natural
that init stuff should be developed as a project related to musl. The
main question is whether we should start such a project (new init) or
may remain with existing init (sysvinid / systemd / runit etc.)?
