        Not really. There is nothing to indicate that how you
 fashioned your run levels would make sense for, say, me. People whoi
 really want tailored run-levels often have very definite ideas about
 how these run-levels would be tailored; it is unlikely that a
 predefined solution designed by committee in Debian would suit their
 needs, and they would have to roll their own, anyway, and a
 predefined solution would just get in their way.

        _Why_ did you not create you own run level schema, BTW, if you
 have indeed needed them so often? (I haven't felt that itch yet, or I
