my random, totally-unsolicited $.02: now that i think about past
experiences i've had when hunting for init scripts and their config
files, i agree with you, david.

being able to just guess/tab-complete filenames for init scripts and
config files may only rarely be felt as a user interface "success",
but on the flipside it's never fun to have to pull out grep/find/etc
to dig something out once the obvious choices have been excluded.

but then again, nobody asked me, so i'll butt out.  ;)
