I doubt they would be C or C++ scripts/programs :) They will again be
shell scripts which are faster executed in dash, sometimes even 4x
faster (in case your script contains only 'exit' :).

This isn't related to init, but to time needed to execute bash/dash
scripts. Init/upstart starts the job, and we are speeding up that job.
