Sigh.  I have seen *so many* of these arguments spattered across the Internet.
Like vi versus emacs, it's become a religious dispute that doesn't allow for 
objective discussion of merits.  Please don't beat a dead horse.  Just accept that 
some people dislike or mistrust systemd, and move on.  The alternatives *are* 
being maintained and are perfectly serviceable.

To answer the OP's question:  While Gentoo is OpenRC by default, I don't
recommend it for your case, because getting TDE installed here is a non-trivial
undertaking.  I keep meaning to try again to do something about that.
