Hmmm. On reading, I notice a function named "initd_clear" called by an
argument of "clear". Running this leaves the system open - all targets
The README in /etc/init.d points at the Debian Policy manual, and this
mentions several standard arguments for init.d scripts - "clear" isn't
one of them.
How would I find out what (if anything) calls with this argument? If
some automated process is going to call this, it will leave my system
with an open firewall, and I need to know to plan around it.
