about init

AFAIK, System V's init runs sequetially from 00foo to 99bar in each runlevel (1,2,3,4,5,6 in linux). And it is long. I wonder if it could be (yes it could) possible to extend init to handle 2 more types of daemons : xxFFbar (fire and forget) and xxPPfoo (Parallel in sequence xx). thus on SMP, unices could start faster by making such a fork.. I'm going to look init's sources next Week-End.. See you later.
