Reshuffled NICs?

Hi all,

On another list we're discussing how likely it is to get two identical
NICs reshuffled on boot when using the old style naming (eth0, not
eno1p2s). By reshuffling I mean that last boot's eth0 is now eth1 and
last boot's eth1 is now eth0. One guy with 4.2 billion years of sysvinit
experience said that although it's possible in theory, he's never seen
it happen except when hardware was replaced.

My question is this: When using inits like runit, s6, s6-rc,
sysvinit+daemontools and the like, is the likelihood of NICs getting
reshuffled on reboot any greater than it would be with sysvinit?
