No, it's mainly for starting/stopping. The main advantage is to be able
to enable/configure all instances in rc.conf (except for the creation
of the symlink).

You mean more understandable than what's in the rc script? I agree with
that. But from the admin point of view, it looks cleaner to me to be
able to configure all services in rc.conf.

How is that? The patch is against the rc.d script, so if it's updated
in such a way that the symlink functionality no longer works, that
would be a bug.
