while talking about wishes: I always wanted 'sh /etc/rc.d/foo start' to do 
just that, regardless if i have foo=yes in /etc/rc.conf or not. A possible 
way to implement that would be to only check the variable on bootup, e.g. 
via a new keyword 'bootstart' or even 'boot' instead of 'start'.

Then again, there seems to be a lot of musing going on here with no clear 
goal. Or maybe I've just missed the whole point of this threat.
