	could we have all the default values copied into the last part
	(do not leave rc.conf almots empty?)  I find it troublesome when the
	default value in /etc/default/rc.conf is changed without my intention
	on upgrade or whatever (like foo=NO is changed into YES in
	/etc/default/rc.conf, and foo starts out of blue).
