That was considered when I added /rescue, and the idea was rejected. I don't recall exactly why. I can speculate that it may be because /rescue/init might not use the same authentication paths as /sbin/init if you're using dynamic nsswitch or PAM, but that's probably not the reason. Maybe someone else can remember. I'm unfussed either way, and am willing to be convinced by a decent argument for or against changing the behaviour. cheers, Luke.
