Welcome to openSUSE 12.1 "Asparagus" - Kernel 3.1.0-1.2-desktop (ttyS0).

This is possible if the scripts are executed in a linear way/ order.
And even with sysvinit we set by default
/etc/sysconfig/boot:RUN_PARALLEL="yes" which already caused some
messages to get messed between others. You had been able to see this
afterwards in /var/log/boot.msg

With systemd this all gets more agile, felxible, unsorted, out of order
and therefore it doesn't make much sense to try to keep it in order.

In the future the systemd Journal feature will offer access to this kind
of information.
