I think this is basically a good idea. My ideal would be for sshd
start early (as soon as /usr is mounted, before attempting to mount
other filesystems) with a minimal config that allows only root
logins, then restart later with the normal config. This would be a
creat option to offer out-of-the-box, though I guess it would take a
little bit of juggling to get right.
