I might be a little off-topic, but I have a small suggestion which isn't
covered by any of the drafts I have seen until now...
I've seen it so many times: The people start or stop a service on a
*production* machine and they also want to change the boot settings
accordingly, but of course without booting. Next time when the machine
boots (maybe months later), it doesn't get up anymore.
Hit list of those fatal changes: typos in configuration, broken
dependencies, broken links, untested firewall settings, lost kernel
One of the small problems I see with the init mechanism as it is now
that the dependencies are resolved during boot. I would like to see
something like a test mode, or, the init mechanism could be modified so
that it the final boot script is generated by compilation.
Only an idea...
