I have also looked far and wide for an init standard.  Same for the so
called "Sys V init" stuff.  In all the standards docs, all I have found
is "There should be a file called /etc/inittab".  Nothing else.  Zip,
nada, there is no standard.

Which is probably why LSB rolled their own.

Stuff I have no control over could be added after this line.
