It is still based on the old SysV init-concept which lacks reliability.
There are existing better methods like minit[1] or runit[2] which are
implementing dependencies also, which are having very fast
startup/shutdown times and which are restarting died processes

I am working on bringing minit to Red Hat, but currently only
vserver-setups are published and NFS-rootfs setups are used internally.
The hand-written (and not very good) flow for my laptop can be found
here[3]; further information can found under this URL too.
