no, it's a reason to use systemd
you have a clean environemt

"users PATH" is nonsense, it's the env-var of the SERVCIE which is most 
likely not the same as for your user and you have a deterministic place 
to set it - with sysvinit you expose a ton of env-vars to services

with systemd you don't see all that stuff in example phpinfo() and so 
don't leak informations

if people would learn to build packages for their software it would not 
be a topic, all my packages overriding distribution packages are just 
using default install paths and a higher rpm-epoch to not get 
overwritten by regular updates
