well, I usually prefer ties over bow ties,
is this a good choice? :)

the difference is this:

 sysv: no init process is spawned, the runlevel
        scripts are invoked directly

        - fake init process is shown
        - calls to init will fail
        - you save the resources for the init
        - you see the startup process

 plain: an init process is spawned, which in turn
        invokes the runlevel scripts

        - init and inittab will be executed
        - commands like reboot/halt will reach init
        - you do not see the startup

it's probably the _more_ natural init-style, but
it also consumes more resources ...
