I am one of (maybe) the few people who has a Debian distro with a compiled KDE 
CVS on top of it, so I need some flexibility. I like booting to init 3 and 
having that always mean that it's just missing the startx command 
with /usr/local/kde/bin/startkde in it...
I like to make sure my Mom is always running init5. Beyond those two, and 0 
and 6, the rest I couldn't give a rat's a about run levels honestly.
