Hmmm ... stderr maybe, something like

  FILE* io[3];
  int notty = 1;

  io[0] = stdin;
  io[1] = stdout;
  io[2] = stderr;
  io[3] = NULL;

  for (n=0; io[n]; n++) {
    int fd = isatty(fileno(io[n]));
    if (tcgetattr(fd, &tio) == 0) {
        notty = 0

could work.

Btw: I've lost your mail

 Alternative startpar implementation - live-net-startpar

please resend.  Beside any startpar it could be an option
to use a directory based boot scheme as insserv aloready
uses a tsort which can be mapped on `directory' based
sorting scheme.  Could work simliar like the process_path()
routine of simpleinit ;)
