Is the split between config in the init script and config in a 
proper /etc/sysconfig file something we wish to continue, perhaps even 
encourage by marking such files as %config?  At the very least it bothers 
rpmlint, but more it bothers me to have an inconsistent design for how 
services should be configured.  We don't protect any other script which may 
be edited by the admin...
