The difference is that:
1) I usually don't use /rescue, and thus don't know if they are working
when that time really do come.
2) I have to remember that I have a /rescue/init, and specify that during
boot, and see to it that I'm using stuff in /rescue and nowhere also, or
face the consequences.

*It is* the same thing I've been repeating a few times now. *Sigh*
