Psmisc, pidof - Ch 6.56.2, Sysvinit or not?

Ok, they shouldn't leave important stuff up to me...

The book says:
It's up to you to decide if you are going to use the Sysvinit package, which provides a pidof program, or not. If you're not going to use Sysvinit, you should complete this package's installation by creating the /bin/pidof symlink:
ln -s killall /bin/pidof
I'm thinking that sysvinit is a good thing to have here for this project.

Is there any reason to say no to sysvinit here and make this link for pidof?

I've never strayed from the sysvinit. In fact, it's probably what you will run into more often than not.
