Thats the users responsibility. You can also use screen or simply &
with a properly configured shell.

If the scripts start to fork off they would all be run in parallel at
boot time and one couldn't ctrl-c them anymore if they run wild.

Also "/etc/init.d/foobar stop; /etc/init.d/foobar start" wouldn't
work. The stop would still be running in the background.

Overall, bad idea.
