Is it possible to keep them both, and use sysvinit as a *second* option
(default being the FreeBSD style)?
I use FreeBSD occasionally (still have an old 486 with it at home :-),
and actually I like it's init style better than debian's (be it not that
much better to hack it into my own debian boxes).



Note: actually I like slackware's init style even more, it resembles
FreeBSD's but keeps the inittab.
