Will Funtoo require initramfs for separate /usr?

Hi all; I'm currently a Gentoo user. There was an email on the Gentoo-Dev list today that Gentoo will soon require initramfs for systems with a separate /usr partition. Will Funtoo follow suit? If not, you've got a new user.

No manditory initramfs for separate /usr or /var for that matter.  Just search for systemd in these forums and you'll find some interesting tidbits.

You should at least give funtoo a try.

I'm obviously not familiar with Funtoo. Is it stand-alone enough that it can stay away from mandatory initramfs when Gentoo goes over to the dark side?

Me too. I much prefer "GNU/Linu-x" to "GNOME/Lenna-x". When systemd swallowed udev, I was ready to move over to mdev, before eudev showed up. I was the rabble-rouser who started the wiki pages...
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Mdev (replacing udev with mdev)
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Mdev/Automount_USB (automounting USB devices under mdev... without any GUI)

I can do really cute stuff with bash shell scripts, but I'm not a C/C++ programmer.
