i've recently begun writing my control scripts in escript.  always hated
all of the "-s foo bar baz" stuff.  so for a server called "f2", for 
example, /etc/init.d/f2-server is a simple shell script that invokes
one of "f2 start", "f2 stop", "f2 status", etc.

it has worked out beautifully thus far.
