about a comment in "endlessh" package about using sysv init

Hi,

I was just reading the Readme.debian from endlessh package, a security tool to trap ssh attacks/ probes. Here is the comment:

The SysV init script in this package is provided for compatibility,
but does not implement the security features of the systemd unit.

Users are strongly advised to use the systemd unit for this service,
as it is a C codebase directly exposed to the network.

What could be these "security features " not available using sysv init?

See the unit file, lines 21 to 40.

For an explanation of the options see systemd.exec(5).
