The spec describes a portable way in which an application's 
init script can describe the ways in which it might depend 
on other scripts. The portability comes from the commenting
convention which gives information to the distro-specific 
"install_initd", which then figures out what to do with it. 
It makes no effort to dictate anything to the distro about 
how its' own init scripts are set up.
