I don't think so. /dev/pts is needed only when the system is read to let the
people in from the outside. System V IPC might be needed at the very early
stage of startup - even before the init.d scripts are ran. I think it could
go to /etc/init.d/rcS - so that it's a third thing done after init executes
the script. But, isn't it better to put it once in the /etc/fstab and then
forget about it? Even more so if you think that many people won't even
_know_ that shmfs exists at the point they install the new kernel!
