Oh, I agree. However, the colors and the huge FAILED do make such a 
relatively minor issue a lot more disturbing and confusing, especially 
for new users.

The extra confusion may even in the long run be a good thing as it may 
incite maintainers to care a bit more about such false errors, but 
handling every possible corner case may also lead to an disproportionate 
increase in complexity in init scripts. I guess we'll have to see how it 
works out.
