Re: [PATCH] Simple parallellized boot sequence (and a plea for LSB complience)

That is correct.  So to handle those, one need to support override
files loaded from somewhere else.  This also make it possible to add
dependency info for scripts currently missing it.

I got a sketch package working as a replacement for sysv-rc,
reorganizing the order in rc#.d/, and running scripts in parallel.
Seem to work, but need more effort to get the dependencies right in
the override files.

Using this approach I am able to cut the boot time of the ltsp client
in qemu by 62%.

Please add dependency information to the init.d scripts to make it
easier to get this right.
