Personally, I have found extensible autostart mechanisms which process
third-party data to be more useful to trojan authors than to users so
I'm mildly inclined to consider such mechanisms to be a misfeatures
rather than features. Based on this assessment, my direct answer to your
question is simply "no, such a feature is not currently planned."
That being said, I'm quite interested in the tradeoff that you raise
between finishing boot quickly so that the user can start doing what
they want to do and extending boot with "expensive" precomputations so
that (on average), the user gets to perform individual actions more
Also, where does hibernation fit in your taxonomy?
P.S. - Thanks for writing!
