Quickie question:

By implementing the 'start' and 'stop' in the local scripts, how much
should one _expect_ their systems bootup and slow down times to take?

I'm hearing whines of being to linux like, to sysv'ish and some likely
valid complaints on startup/shutdown time.

I, for one, like the functionality, and thought it kinda already worked
that way (or maybe I _made_ it work that way on my machines, cn't
remember).  I would like solid facts, rather than a religious/exagerated

To my (limited) understanding of this subject, it's not going to make hour
long boot-ups.  It may increase shutdown time to do things, but, sometimes
you need to properly shut things down.  If that were not the case, one
could flip the power switch instead of typing shutdown..............
