As any non-toy system needs reliable, resilient and predictable init scripts
free of bugs like:
* force-unmounting your RAID when you manually mount it degraded
* killing properly backgrounded filesystem maintenance if you log off
  (intentionally or just due to a flaky network connection, etc)
I'm not sure what non-toy systems you're talking about.

(Sorry for responding to an obvious troll post -- responding just in case it
was actually somehow meant as serious.)
