Though you possibly know..., but a '/etc/rc.d/foo' scripts is run when
'/etc/rc.conf' includes 'foo=YES' (assuming the script is written
properly). Then just putting it under '/etc/rc.d' doesn't mean it
installed and run automatically at start up.

It seems to me that having an interface for start up script is not so
bad idea.
