I agree.  In theory, if you can change the behavior of "init", you'll
change the behavior of all subsequent tasks (the settings are
inherited across fork).  If you're willing to hack /etc/inittab, you
could probably do that with the "prctl" utility today (or perhaps even
with prctl + a suitable kernel command line), but none of these
solutions seem to be very pretty.  Perhaps someone can come up with a
cleaner solution?
