There are advantages to call the init.d script to poll its dependencies,
instead of reading them:

- the script can give them according to configuration files or by
  verifying that something is really needed (e.g. if a service is only
  accessed by unix sockets, no need for networking),
- it doesn't force init.d scripts to be really shell scripts (dunno if
  this is really desirable, though).
