I'm sorry I didn't make myself clear, but what I was actually getting at was
that traditionally the kernel boot verbose option and userland stuff like
rc.d have been orthogonal. However, it occurs to me that this does not
necessarily need to be so. I could see how it might be useful to set
rc_debug in rc.subr if the bootverbose sysctl is active. What do others
think about this?
