This service fails to start on a my machine with a nfs network root mounted filesystem:
Service `pydoc-2.7' needs non existent service `net'

Makes no sense to have that with newer openrc, and it doesn't usually do the right thing with older openrc ...
Do this, please. There is no reason net must be up for this to start, it does not need to bind to a specific IP or connect to external services.
Thanks for the ping. I don't think revbumping everything for this makes sense, so only newly installed python will get the net-depend-less init script.
