Now I'm Curious. 
I thought if init terminated, your shell, ash,csh or whatever would
not be able to function. Could you restart init from remote or even 
from the main console if this happened. And what would be the condition
of memory. Would all the processes you had running not still be in 
memory. Then when you reinstalled init, would it not try to reinstall
all the processes again that are specified in rc scripts.
I have never had init terminate prematurely, so I have now idea what
the results would be.
