Initng with Slackware

Has anyone played with Initng - will it work with Slackware? It does, after all, use a BSD init style - are these compatible?
Slackware is fast, but it would be nice, if it was really fast. U'know?

Not played with it, I expect it would work with Slackware, it seems the slackware rc scripts could be used, but looking at the examples it seems it would be better to port the scripts to how initng intended them to be. The people over at gentoo seem to be moving towards initng, though currently it seems sysvinit is still the main player.

That should get you started, though please remember it is still in beta
