Personally, I'm in favor of all services having init.d scripts, for
convenience and consistency.  Yes, if someone installs daemontools, then he
should know how to use it.  But I myself have been using daemontools for
quite a while now and I prefer the simplicity of typing one command
to stop and start qmail, instead of a bunch of commands --

init.d way:
/etc/init.d/qmail start

daemontools way:
svc -u /var/qmail/supervise/*
svc -u /var/qmail/supervise/*/log

init.d way:
/etc/init.d/dns stop

daemontools way:
svc -d /etc/tinydns
svc -d /etc/tinydns/log
svc -d /etc/dnscache
svc -d /etc/dnscache/log

You get the point.  IMHO It's just more convenient to have it all in one
"friendly" script.
