How about using a similar approach than with the runit-services package?

Make a sysvinit-services package or better rename orphan-sysvinit-
scripts to that name and make it a dependency? Well runit-services is 
just a recommend to runit-init… but in case of udev… a dependency would 
be better. Of course it could also remain named orphan-sysvinit-scripts

Also a missing udev init script could affect users running runit as well. 
runit-services currently has no runit service dir to start udev. So 
runit would rely on the init script.
