But do we really need _all_ the scripts readable early in boot?

If I know, that my scripts will not need to be run early in boot,
it would be sufficient to re-evaluate rcorder later on with new
scripts that are accessible then (e.g. after a mount) which could
be triggered by a certain script (e.g. /etc/rc.d/mount-pkg) that
contains dependencies that allow to specify when to run it
and that re-evaluates rcorder at the given point in time/boot.
