==== Description: ====
TinyInit is a small modern system init package for UNIX-like systems.

It is specifically targeted at embedded environments, and will work happily on
the desktop.

Its main features are:

1.      Small; size /sbin/init:
        text       data     bss     dec     hex filename
        6777        864    3624   11265    2c01 /sbin/init

2.      Fast; services are started and stopped in parallel.

3.      Dynamic; service dependencies are reported to init program during boot.

4.      Additional services can be manually started/stopped after boot.

5.      Simple; unified configuration/rc-mechanism, not two-level inittab +

6.      Can use external rc-mechanism if needed, e.g. Gentoo OpenRC.

7.      Specifically targeted at embedded environments, in particular:
        works happily with read-only file systems;
        performs no explicit dynamic memory allocation.

8.      Single user mode supported, as instructed by kernel.

9.      Multi-platform; tested on GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD and NetBSD.

10.     Complete with utility programs for:
        service management;
        daemon management;
        single-user mode login;
        multi-shot getty;
        system halt program.
