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).
