I should think the normal case for a webcam (I'm thinking USB webcams,
now) would be for the cam to not necessarily be present at boot time.
Instead, when the cam module is loaded/unloaded by the kernel it should
invoke via kernel module (un-)loading hooks the necessary scripts for
starting/stopping the streaming server. Are you sure you really want
this as an init script?
