Not necessarily ones that require a shell to execute.  The target users
have nearly no use for a shell (or if they need one, we haven't done our
job).  Fedora's initscripts are a stinking pile of crap right now
anyway.  There's some room to rethink the init process for these things,
and maybe that means ditching the dependency on a shell _during the init
process_.
