Is "opentmpfiles" for openRC a useful package?

I was going through openRC wiki and saw this package - https://github.com/openrc/opentmpfiles which is also packed for Debian in testing & sid repositories. Anybody using it.

Utility for handling systemd-style tmpfiles.d settings for systems booting openrc

Hi,

For now no, in future will be probably needed to avoid systemd lockin on certain Debian packages.
There is a commit [1] recently merged (but not yet uploaded to Debian archives) that makes opetmpfiles a dropin replacement to systemd-tmpfiles, so each package that has a dependency on systemd because of tmpfiles can use tmpfiles instead of systemd, if someone convince the maintainer of such package to change the dependency from 'systemd' to  ' systemd | systemd-tmpfiles '.
Only example for now is the php7.x-fpm package that need a rebuild on Devuan right now, but will be installable once the new version of opentmpfiles will be uploaded.
Same goes for opensysusers package.

Regards,
Lorenzo
