That's not the way a bugzilla was filed against audit:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=246872

which blocks 246824. If we change our minds about this, it would be nice if 
the filer of the bug writes something on the bz saying the need was 
overstated or delayed. 

Meanwhile, everyone playing with parallel boot will probably be missing AVCs 
in the audit logs, or if they are using audit will have a lot of processes 
unauditable. If GDM or another login daemon runs before audit, the users 
login uid in the kernel's task struct will not be set when they login. This 
also means there won't be a login session task attribute set that identifies 
which login any process is associated to. IOW, there is a lot of security 
tracking that goes wrong.

Does it allow one to say I need this to start at a specific point in time 
without modifying all initscripts?
