After hearing your talk about init systems at debconf and reading your
paper, I switched an embedded machine from using busybox init to
simpleinit from util-linux, which supports 'need', 'provide', etc. It
reduced the 70s boot time by approximately 10s.

This is potentially an even bigger win on a machine with more than a
RAM-based filesystem.
