No offense, but the rc*d abortion in Solaris and mess of SYS V 
configuration files in general would seem to serve as an example of what
not to do.  I personally moved to BSD because of its streamlined approach,
in contrast to the idiotic over-engineering in Sys V R4 unices like solaris,
and I doubt I'm alone in this.  (bottom line: If it ain't broke-don't fix it)
