That sounds like a good idea.

The background is as follows: Aaron wants to be able to intersperse their own /init 
program, which then calls kinit (the shipped-with-the-kernel standard klibc component). 
This is a good thing; this kind of modularity is one of several serious reasons for klibc. 
  At issue is what heuristic to apply to make sure we don't step on what the interspersed 
/init did.
