17 Right, which is a bit freakin' odd, because on most every previous distro and other *nix system, that's where the system administrator goes to start and stop services.
19 If they're not used, in this case, I don't think they should be installed.
21 /etc/init.d is wholly different from /usr/share/package-name/examples
23 There are many other directories on the system where it's no problem to have some idle, unused, "wasted" files, but /etc/init.d has long been an important directory.
