I'm not sure I agree that nothing is gained. BLFS has much more varied
packages than LFS. I think its important for users to see differences
and similarities in printed form (or at least screen form in line with
the other instructions). What options are given to package x when
starting. Is there a difference between reload (e.g. send a -HUP) and
restart (e.g. stop and restart)? What is the S number and K number for
the script? The easiest way to explain the differences is to just
display the scripts.
If you must have a procedure, go ahead and add it. But lets not take it
out of the book. I know it can lead to unsynchronized scripts, but
prevent that is the responsibility of the editors.
