Uhm... yes.  And if you read that thread you will notice that I did
already post the first response in it.  :-)  I did even mention
modifying the init scripts as one possible way.  It was my first
suggestion.  But I also suggested an alternative way too that did not
change the init scripts at all.

That case is actually a good example of a case where I saw no reason
to manage init scripts in it.  That doesn't mean I think that
modifying the start links is wrong.  There is more than one way to do
it.  It just means that *I* wouldn't do it in that case.  It doesn't
need it.

And so I am still looking for a good case example for it. :-)
