Yes, that's what I wanted to know with both questions: if the current
system is smart enough to know which services to shut down and what not
to when changing runlevels. Just by looking at the contents
of /etc/rc<RL>.d/, it just seems so flat (no hierarchy info) that it's
possible to think that the system might actually be shutting down all
services and restarting them in the new run-level.

Which script handles this? I'm curious to know. I've only been able to
trace the startup scripts but get lost when tracing init(8).
