Not strictly necessary - init just prints a warning message if it isn't there.
Initially it can be handy to use a wrapper script like

#! /bin/sh
/emsecondstage 2>&1 | tee /tmp/emsecondstage.log

so you get logs if something goes wrong [ I don't think init directly
supports redirections]
Of course that could easilly test if the script exists.
