Well, we *already* have over a dozen /etc/rc.* files on -current.  And
we *don't* have the advantage of a consistent interface to control all
the functions in /etc/rc. If you break things up, then if you need to
restart the mail server, just go "/etc/rc.d/sendmail restart". dhcpd?
"/etc/rc.d/sendmail/dhcpd restart". Etc.

Of course, for consistency ports should be tweaked to use have the
same provides/requires setup, and use rc.subr instead of the homegrown

Which brings up the real downside of doing this - you have to parse
rc.subr and rc.conf for *every* one of those scripts.
