Speaking of abilities which it would be nice to have restored, I find
that in 3.1, typing ^C during the boot-time fsck simply terminates the
fsck and startup continues, apparently normally.  Under the 1.4T I'm
used, to, this stops the fsck and drops into single-user mode, which I
think is by far the more useful behaviour.  What would it take to bring
that back?  (It might be trivial - I haven't looked yet.)
