someone mentioned tossing the init scripts for a single script, i'd go
one better - toss the scripts. write a c program to do all that and
have init run it. should be easy to learn (by docs or init source or
trial and error) what rc script is run first and what args it gets.
then have the c program fork and exec what it needs to run.
one issue might be a need to set environment vars that the shell would
normally set. again, figure this out by trial and error.
