Theoretically we could it but we need to do quite a lot of work that is
more problematic than the problem that it solves (starting from moving
CONF outside the init.d meaning of another configfile to check and
maintain and so on...).

I agree with you 100%. A comment will help and we can close these 2 bugs.
