Everytime I hear someone mentioning initng I get a headache.

They got almost everything wrong you can get wrong in an init
system. The kept the worst things from SysV (such as numerical
"runlevels"), and added the worst things they could find in other
people's software. Like the braindeadness to make everything a shared
object, including stuff like executing chdir(). Can you believe that?
They have a "plugin" to change a directory which consists of 100 lines
or code or so. Unbelievable...
