No, I don't dislike it. It's just that I got 4 other Linux boxes around and
I am too stupid to remember that mu uses a different command to stop/start
daemons. The /etc/rc.d/ stuff is linux standard and maintaining standards is
important IMHO.

Anyway, my script is just a smart reference to your "setup XYZ" and anybody
with not enough room for additional 470 bytes may ignore it.
