And you feel OK about other scripts on your system silently losing changes 
because they're outside of /etc?  init script placement in /etc always seemed 
funny to me, these are scripts to be executed, not files to be configured.  
Just because they live in /etc shouldn't give them any special treatment over 
any other script that may live in /usr

I'd prefer if init scripts didn't live in /etc at all, or were symlinked 
into /etc for compat purposes, but that's a larger change than I want to push 
right now.
