Indeedily. I imagine that this can be used at noisebridge for some really 
slick automation. For example, runlevel 0 would turn off all the LED strips, 
art installations, house lights, PA system, projectors, etc to conserve energy 
and lock the doors. Runlevel 1 would enable some sort of maintenance mode with 
full house lights, test patterns on displays, diagnostics to poke printers, 
the 'net uplink, etc.

Obviously runlevel 6 is a rave that dims the house lights, puts killer video 
sequences on every imaging device, deploys the bar that pops out of the floor.
