The thing is, there is no Pulp outside of Apache. That script takes care 
of mongo, apache, and qpid. If you don't stop Apache, Pulp keeps running.

I'm confused at your maintenance page example though. If the issue is 
that Apache is started/stopped by Katello as well, how is that need met 
by us removing Apache from that init.d script?

I'm open to suggestions. We've talked about a *-service type script, but 
at the end of the day that's going to be the same thing where Apache is 
started/stopped/restarted to accomplish the Pulp notions of those
