I know rcvar well enough and that force* feature too, what I don't like is
that sometimes from command line you'll never know if it is a problem with
wrong line in rc.conf or something else... Of course it is good if during
boot there is no useless messages scrolling. So, rcvar can't detect if it was
launched bye rc or from shell?
