The idea would be that different plugins would represent some abstract
notion at some stage in the boot process, i.e. "mount the root
filesystem" would be abstracted away to a script that was
correct/specific for the platform it was on, and the init would simply
"call" the program/script/symlink at a pre-arranged location. No
conditional logic needed, just point to the right plugins. :)

Yes, plugin in this context is an externally callable script or program
of some kind, called by the init in the correct ordering/sequence. A
control script or program would do the coordination and "call" each

You said there are others with a similar approach, I guess I need to do
some additional homework.
