Tests were done on Lenin.
When doing a full boot with X, hotplug and the network daemons, minit does not gain
me much, because hotplug needs 40 seconds for the USB coldplug stuff and X has to
wait for this (Init: 01:10, Minit: 01:06). However, the gettys are up after 7 seconds
with minit, because the hotplugging stuff can be done in the background (Init needs
a whopping 01:03 before I can start to do any work). For shutting down the services,
Init needs 16 seconds, while Minit needs only 4.
Unfortunately, you will not really notice this, because 25k are hardly much on
today's systems. But with 17 multilogs and a minit running, I have roughly
the same memory footprint as with sysvinit.
