?!?!?!?  AIUI, the whole point of the /etc/rc?.d/ directories is to
control what gets started in which runlevel - if the link is there it
should get started, otherwise not.  Or have I fundamentally
misunderstood init?

How, for example, do you propose that this funny thing with a variable
cope with a desire to have ppp going in one runlevel but not another?
