Roughly the same thing was bothering me last night.  You get a chance
to specify the shell when init is in the last phase of getting you to
single-user mode so you can say /rescue/sh at that point.  init is
another story and I asked someone about that, they said it either is
or will shortly be a loader option so you can override that to be
/rescue/init that way.
