I think this is a great idea.

We thus need
/usr/sbin/rcinstall [verbal-runlevel] [before-string] [after-string] [this-service]
where verbal runlevels are stuff like single-user, etc the distribs decide
together on, and where  [before-string] [after-string] [this-servi
ce]  are pre-agrred and LSB codified names
ie. network
