IIRC the output of rc.d scripts is in fact supposed to be parsed by
the postprocessing routines in rc.subr.

Due to the above, no.  However, if the server binary itself gibbers
something to stdout that is not "designed to be parsed" before forking,
I'd call it a bug, yes.

Not really sure what point you're trying to make, though, and I'm
definitely not the most authoritative source on this, so if someone
else wants to chime in/set things straight...
