Description of problem:

other embedded devices.

This isn't something that'll likely ever be a priority; if you've got a
non-standard environment you're booting into, then you can simply make
/sbin/init be the program you want to be init.
That being said, if you reopen this with a patch, I'm amicable to reviewing it
and eventually including it.
