Really?  I would think if users didn't want it started they wouldn't include
it in their config.

I see config/init handled a bit differently in different projects.  Is there
no set standard?

It seems convenient to have a default config set up and installed.  That way
not everyone has to write their own custom config and init scripts.  And
for those who want a custom config, it should be easily allowable to
integrate custom configs.  I like how samba does it:

$(INSTALL) -m 0755 package/samba/S91smb $(TARGET_DIR)/etc/init.d
@if [ ! -f $(TARGET_DIR)/etc/samba/smb.conf ]; then \
                $(INSTALL) -m 0755 -D package/samba/simple.conf
$(TARGET_DIR)/etc/samba/smb.conf; \

It installs a base sample config, unless a user has a custom config already

Opinions?  Feedback?

I imagine that most people run into this same issue with their projects.

Or, how is everyone else solving this issue?
