I've grown to like the RedHat system since they added the
'service' wrapper program so it's:
service any_service stop|start|restart
without having to think about what signal you have to send or
which processes you have to kill.

The scripts are ugly because what you would have to do without
them is ugly and inconsistent - and you would have to remember
it yourself.
