RedHat's decision to use rc.d is annoying to some because of its
departure from existing practice---I know I would hate to have to
switch between RedHat and Solaris, for instance. Of course, I don't
have to because I use Debian, which pays attention to prior art.
If you want this sort of RedHat compatability, feel free to put the
appropriate symlinks in *your* filesystem, rather than asking everyone
to accomodate RedHat's idiosyncracies.
