implementing that.

I seem to recall that it was suggested for inclusion in DFly too but the consensus of the developers were that boot-time is not important enough to use a potentially "dangerous" method. Not that anyone thought it to be especially dangerous but nor was it worth the effort. The reasoning was that DFly would most likely be used on servers which are normally not booted that often, however as I run it on my laptop I wouldn't mind a faster boot :-)
