no, don't do this.

I think a fair number of sysadmins will be like me and will hate the
idea of a remote NT box being able to control services on my box. I
certainly don't want Samba squirreling through my startup scripts
looking for things to screw up.

If a admin wants this they can use:

cd /etc/rc.d/init.d
ls | awk '{print $1" "/etc/rc.d/init.d/$1}' > /etc/services.conf
