init.d yes but isn't edgy upstart now ( with only compliance until
edgy+2 iirc )

Maybe we need to revisit this again in Mt. View Cali for a longer term
solution because of the fact of third party scripts, books , etc etc etc

I know its not "right" for them to expect non-posix from a /bin/sh but
it has been there for so long on so many systems its become defacto and
there isn't anything wrong with either way, I'm saying we just might
want to spend atleaste __one__ BoF on this in November since the "new
world order" of upstart and that was the main reason for the switch,
then alot of ubuntu deltas can be dropped etc

just my 0.2c
