Or even conveniently bring up different sets of services at boot time?
Eg. you would get a menu with entries like "broadband", "dialup", "a place
where I have a fixed IP address N.N.N.N", "no network at all" etc. before
init runs, and each could be made to start up different sets of things.
(This obviously is useful only on systems normally booted with a user in
attendance, like desktops and laptops).
The SysV init runlevels do not handle this, because they are rather
hierarchical (level N assumes services started at level N-1 are running).
In this case it is not a question of network vs no network, but
different kinds of network.
I guess what I want isn't very hard to implement in principle, but
it would probably be very distribution-dependent. I wonder if there
is existing software like this?

"SCPM enables your system to save different configurations in profiles. You can boot directly into a profile as well as switch profiles at run time. It is the successor of scheme management."

My critique was about having expensive ( resourcewise ) software
installed and running by default ( and only an absolute minority
of users having any real use for that.)
YaST currently is too splintered to give access to switching
these features in a meaningfull way.
Forex adding some timesource via serial line breaks _silently_
on apparmor rules for ntpd. ( had some Talk, fixed )
The answers to my original post are up to slahdot level.

However, it's quite unlikely that a random argument you pick will
name-clash, and if it does you can always rename it.
