My concern would be that we should likely standardize on a
for new helper commands wherever possible. Do we have existing ones outside
of iptables at this point?
Postgresql has been using a "postgresql-setup" helper script since F16,
and the F16 release notes explain that instead of "service postgresql
foo" you should do "postgresql-setup foo". The two nonstandard actions
provided this way are "initdb" and "upgrade", both of which are for
database setup, hence the choice of script name. That choice probably
doesn't fit for other uses of nonstandard actions, though.
