I don't remember saying something like this, but I may have thought so for a

Fact is that nobody knows under which circumstances disks are not unmounted
cleanly. I *know* that when you fsck under linux, you get a clean disk at
next reboot, and if you don't screw up, it stays clean. But when you fsck
under Hurd during boot time, it does not end up clean. I am not sure what
happens if you e2fsck under Hurd manually (forcing).

Not installing sysvinit is not a good idea either, because daemons are not
started properly.
