You should take a look at /etc/cron* There's many things listed there
that won't show up in services.  I'm not saying they shouldn't, but
right now it would not be consistant for me to add Cacti to an init
script.  Logrotate is an excellent example, the logs don't rotate
themselves and logrotate does not show up in system-config-services.

I'm really not against the idea of using init for cron scripts, or
somehow integrating cron into system-config-services.  But I don't
think its common practice.
