I'd like to be able to create arbitrarily-named things similar-to-runlevels,
which could inherit from each other.  Thus, I could say

	runlevel standard {
		start net;
		start foo;
		start bar;

	runlevel xdm {
		inherit standard;
		start xdm;

	runlevel netless {
		inherit standard;
		stop net;

and things like that.  

I also want this to magically run efficiently on a VAX 11/730.
