i like it, but i'm concerned that the new defaults won't contain
settings for old rc.d scripts that have been obsoleted (and not
removed), so there's the possibility of accumulating messages of the
form "WARNING: $foo is not set" at boot time.

of course...removing scripts that are suspected of being obsolescent
is a tricky task.
