Uniform and prettier boot/init.d system with looks similiar to fedora
possibly threaded(?) startup and logging as discussed during Debconf.
I can't remember if its actually called threaded, but where non

Boot splash can help with the prettier part. I think that is what fedora

deb http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free
apt-get install kernel-patch-bootsplash bootsplash sysv-rc-bootsplash
