In 6 years, I've never dropped any machine to single user to do any part
of a buildworld upgrade. I've stopped many running services, but never
gone to single user. The only time I had any problems with this approach
was when I blindly flubbed versions in my supfile and cvsup'd a 6 system
with 4 source. That wasn't pretty. But it would have been not pretty in
single user mode as well.
