Yep. My fingers (or brain) slurred that one! :-(

You'd be surprised. A lot just do init, which is also correct. I don't
know why there was ever a distinction though. AFAICR, telinit has always
been a link (hard or soft) to init. I've never looked into the code to
see if argv[0] causes any change in code execution.
