runit and s6 replaced inittab with regular init services.

I don't like inittab because modifications to inittab are challenged by new versions of sysvinit and it is difficult to read and write inittab.

OpenRC is largely okay, but I don't like /etc/inittab.

It's already not used by openrc, it's sysvinit that use it working in concert with openrc.

But openrc comes with "openrc-init" that can be used as a replacement to sysvinit if you wish (I've used that for a while myself), things like agetty will be managed by normal openrc boot scripts instead (e.g. can use /etc/conf.d to setup ttys individually or even auto-login if need be -- instead of inittab).

With USE=sysv-utils on openrc you'll receive compatibility stuff (a /sbin/init symlink, reboot/shutdown wrapper scripts, agetty in default runlevel, etc...)
