Hello, great screencast..
I don't think it's a good manner to get the unicorn started by symlinked script in /etc/init.d, because the script which can be changed by deployer user is ran by root user at boot so it makes huge security vulnerability when the deployer user account is hacked throught the webapp..
Probably better would be to use some gem like whenever and get the init script started by the cron "every :reboot"
