It seems that some services return 0 and others 1 in the same case:

# lighttpd running:
~# /etc/init.d/lighttpd start ; echo $?
 * Starting web server lighttpd

# apache2 running:
~# /etc/init.d/apache2 start ; echo $?
 * Starting web server apache2 httpd (pid 8877) already running
 [ OK ]

In the above case which is the "bad" init script?:
- lighttpd uses LSB specs.
- apache2 uses Debian specs.
