(I forgot to mention)  J.W.'s patch does more than what a mere symlink
would do.  By making programs sensitive both to /run/nologin and
/etc/nologin, it becomes possible for the administrator to prevent
logins by touching /etc/nologin, and this will not affect or be
affected by what sysvinit does to /run/nologin.  Is this a good idea?
