There is one thing that I dont see yet. There might be a necessity to
introduce parallel routes, e.g. you would want to have a runlevel that
starts xdm, and one that starts networking deamons for machines that
actually are on a network. But there is no intrinsic order between
these things. My machine at home is not connected to any network, which
means that certain daemons are not necessary, even if I do want to run
X. Other people may want to connect to the network without having to
go through a runlevel that starts xdm. Now how is this tackled?
