Documentation is  rather absent. Currently (from Parse.pm),  it seems to
only  support   and  use  "Short-Description",   "Description",  "Exec",
"Prestart-Hook",  "Poststop-hook"  and  "No-Auto"  directive.   It  also
supports "Required-Start".  It seems  that simple things, like "reload",
cannot be achieved.
