You should ask yourself if you really need a battleship like sysvinit. You
know, you could just use a simple shell script as init that launches the
services you want. Or a Perl script if that suits you better. There is no
requirement for init to be a binary of any kind in general or sysvinit in
particular. You could also check out old versions of simpleinit (before
util-linux-2.10q) when it was still simple.
Digitize if possible - Eradicate if necessary!
