Since there are many init providers, would be interesting to be able to set /sbin/init (used by kernel as fallback in some situations) to the init being used by each setup.

For that, would be interesting to allow sysvinit to (optionally if you prefer) install init file with a different name (or under a different place) letting downstream maintainers to easily choose what init want to run.

Currently, on Sabayon they are tweaking src/paths.h and src/init.h to do that (search by "rename" in https://raw.github.com/Sabayon/systemd-love/master/sys-apps/sysvinit/sysvinit-2.88-r8.ebuild), but an upstream solution could be interesting to show a unified way to do this.

Thanks a lot!
