[moved to tech-userlevel from source-changes]
what about just having a section at the top of the rc.d script itself
that sets the defaults?
e.g, for /etc/rc.d/ntpdate, something like:
--> new section follows
--> contains "defaults: " and then a description of what it does
# defaults: set date and time via NTP
this could be used by a script to build the default sushi form files
