I'm trying to minimize the amount that has to be done in single-user
mode (I don't have console access; I have to trust my hosting company's
tech support for that part).  Is there any serious reason that mergemaster
needs to be run in single-user mode?

Ideally, I'm trying to get something that needs no operator intervention
during single-user mode.  Currently, if mergemaster can be run just
before booting into single-user mode, the operator needs to type one
command ("upgrade", a shell script in /root/bin which runs the fsck,
mount, swapon, cd, make installworld, and fastboot commands).
