GNOME with openrc

 Hi all,

I am a big fan of openrc as init. I messed with some GNOME packages to make them run as openrc services.
gdm3, gnome-desktop, gnome-shell, gnome-session and network-manager are somewhat working. For gdm3 the credit goes to dudemanguy:

I am trying to get the rest of the packages to run properly (colord, pipewire, bolt, upower..). 
Would it make sense just to write a small package containing the modifications and initfiles? The most notable change is that I just disabled building with systemD support for most packages. Would it make sense to repacke gdm as gdm-elogind?
Let me know what you think. I hope that openrc integration in Debian gets better.
