O.k., you're right - it was on linuxbase.org. Which we support,
according to their main-page. And there is this linked from there:
.----- quote -----
| ------- start of cut text --------------
| 0 halt
| 1 single user mode
| 2 multiuser with no remote networking
| 3 normal/full multiuser
| 4 reserved for local use, default is normal/full multiuser
| 5 xdm or equivalent
| 6 reboot

So, I'm asking, why we don't follow this guidelines? I don't see any
contradiction with our current approach to leave it up to the user. That
won't interfer IMHO, for the update-rc script (or what ever it's called)
doesn't touch the links if any of them exists, right? So the user can
still change 'em to her/his likes.
Now, are we part of the linuxbase-project or aren't we? I know that
it's not good to take everything without asking it - but the current
setup is somewhat nonsense to me - 4 runlevels with the same setup....
Just a thought.
