The /etc/rc.d/init.d {start|stop|restart} system is pretty standard.  It's
called System V init.  It has the advantage of being somewhat modular but
has a bit of a high overhead in that it needs to start up many shells.

Anyway, I think the issue has been resolved.  Isn't it great all this work
going on while you're asleep.  (-:
