Let me make a really wild suggestion that is really impractical:
rather than copying SysV, someone should figure out how to
do the following:
* define system states symbolically (not via
numbers) (e.g. multi-user, etc.)
* provide classes of dependencies for start-up
script ordering, both forward and backward.
Hmm.. I can see it now...
Run a sed script over /etc/rc*.d/*, generate a makefile, and then have
init use "make" to transition between states... :-)
