Well, if you completely rewrite /etc/rc, then you're on
your own anyway, and you're supposed to know what you're
doing. In general it is not a good idea and will lead
to serious foot-shooting.
By the way, what is the reason that you don't use the
standard rc(8) facilities? I don't see anything in you
custom script that wouldn't be covered by them.
