That's not quite correct. Upstart not only handles the relationship
between hardware events and services (start ntpdate when network
interface is available and configured) but also between services and
services (start hal when dbus is available etc). Upstart handles the
complete boot process and not only the early boot, as you suggest. More
info on that will follow.
