I guess you would like to says that scripts.sh lives in /etc/init.d
while XXXscripts.sh lives in /etc/rc.d and /etc/shutdown.d. if not,
you are at the oposite of the SystemV semantic ! and would be a pain
for system administrators. why not to simply adopt the SystemV semantic ?
not all is bad in System V :)
