I have a version of init I used on 386BSD-0.1, called chmr-init.
I have no idea how well it would interface with NetBSD-1.0+, but I just
thought someone might want this datapoint.  It supports run-levels, AFAIR.

I find the flexibility of run levels intruiging (and for what it's worth,
it always seemed like it was missing from BSD), but I admit I rarely used
any but single and multi/full/kitchen-sink.
