Consider that I would like to selectively prevent certain programs from
being started at boot time, such as, say, icmplogd, or the tama daemon.
Further, I don't just want to nuke them off the system, or delete the
symlinks in the rc.d hierarchy.
What is the preferred method for temporarily disabling them? I've thought
of renaming the pertinent script in the init.d dir, but I'm wondering if
there is a downside to this approach.
