Apparently it can today ... with init scripts, which _new_ features will
be brought in for the _boot_ process. udev takes care of the events,
already today, right? More secure boot, faster boot (coreboot), better
debugging, simple ways of logging the boot massages, etc? Don't talk
about plug-and-p{r}ay, that is not interesting for _boot_: Found new
hardware, eh?

BTW: When boots is asynchronous, who is sorting the boot messages to be
readable afterwords, or is this taken care of by the now so famous tools
systemd and upstart.
