Erm... at least any distribution I know of stores the boot scripts in
/etc/init.d with links to these scripts in /etc/rc/rcX.d or /etc/rcX.d.
I don´t know any distro that stores them in /sbin, and never heard
someone to want this. Isn´t sysv-init-style something like a standard?
Just curious.

Well, 20 years ago I was 5 years old... would have been hard work to
plant a tree :))
