comment Bash- detect init system
@naxa - Short answer, no. Long answer, you can get pretty far with ps -p 1 -o command (prints the path to the current init). On Arch Linux and Fedora (IIRC), it's a symlink to the systemd binary (probably same on all systemd systems). On upstart, init --help will print usage information, and on my box, upstart is mentioned where it says who to email. On FreeBSD (sysV), this will return an error. There may be similar clues on other systems, but since asking this question, I've decided to just create them for all platforms and make separate packages for each one.

@ZanLynx - You can create a .desktop file for whatever you use. I use xmonad fine with GDM.
