eINIT is an alternative init system. It's quite fast, since it can potentially be used without the help of any scripting at all, but it is still flexible and extremely modular. The focus is on speed and parallelisation, mostly with embedded devices and low-downtime servers in mind, and benchmarks do suggest that it's doing a fairly good job at that. It compiles cleanly (and should thus work, provided someone writes appropriate modules) on Linux, FreeBSD, and Darwin/Mac OS X.

waitfordevice is a tool that waits for a device to become available. One can use this, for example, when waiting for a USB device to be fully ready after modprobing the USB subsystem (which runs async). This tool can be used in startup scripts or other scripts that need to use a device. It is better guaranteed to work (and more efficient) than using a couple of sleep statements.
