While this is braindead, if we are to go with rc?.d, I feel we should at
least stick to the interface of it as far as, say, the Solaris "standard"
- before going to run level 2, all rc2.d/K* get called with "stop", then all
of rc2.d/S* get called with "start";
- when shutting down or rebooting, all rc0.d/K* get called with "stop".
Frankly, I couldn't care less about everything else, but attempts at
improving the way things are handled (i.e., by calling the stop scripts in
reverse alphabetical order, or bringing down a multiuser system by calling
all of rc2.d/K*) might add more confusion.
HP-UX 10 springs to mind.
My two cents...
