I don't inspect this changes yet, but please don't forget that even 
converted to rc.d local scripts are not as safe as system ones and must 
run in the subshell to avoid various environment damaging. F.e. apache 
change limits to user www. If it happens in the main rc shell, all 
following scripts will suffer. There are other examples. I remember we 
already hit this problem before, attempting to do similar conversion.
