Before this thread got all sidetracked, it did have a point:  regardless
of whether upstart is event based, the login prompt on the console (the
tty that is /dev/console, not just any text screen: the other 5 virtual
ttys should be fine) should not come up until everything else is done on
the console.  Alternatively, the console should be moved elsewhere so as
not to interfere with the login prompt.

Bad - You get pulled over for doing 90 in a school zone and you're drunk
off your ass again at three in the afternoon.
Worse - The cop is drunk too, and he's a mean drunk.
FUCK! - A mean drunk that's actually a swarm of semi-sentient
flesh-eating beetles.
