I didn't think so either, so I didn't try that.  Without single-user
mode, I was unable to remount RO.

<peeve>Side note: even when that was possible, IIRC most systems
required you to log in as root.  That's one of the places where
Ubuntu's no-root-pw policy gets you in trouble.  That and any attempt
to fix things when booting fails.  Try the recovery startups in GRUB
for instance.</peeve>
