What is the big picture here?   You could probably just stick your
script into /etc/rc.d/rc.local where it will run at the end of the
other runlevel processing - and have it put back the old version if it
only needs to run once.

But, poking through /etc/init/* it looks like a file named
/etc/init/rcS-sulogin.override would do something magic like you want.
