Mostly because I was already in the mindset of writing an OS-specific
init script, which I believe will be necessary for Red Hat.
Also, I've tried to write cross-platform init scripts in the past, and
it's been my experience that it's difficult to do a good job on all of
the different operating systems. Even simple things like trying to
figure out the hostname ("hostname", "uname -n", etc.) can bite you.
To be honest, I don't think I ever seriously considered using rc.news;
I just glanced through it to figure out what my Solaris init.d script
would need to do.
