Given that it's also RPM based, is it possible to get SuSE in sync so that 
it shares the same init script as RHEL?  Devrim is in the middle of a 
major overhaul of the RHEL/Fedora init script lately, adding better 
support for multiple postmasters and the like, and I'd think that SuSE 
users would like to take advantage of that work too.

It seems to me that the only popular Linux versions that people use for 
PostgreSQL work that don't have active init script maintainers are SuSE 
and Gentoo.  If your LSB-based approach could be made to work on both 
those, that would be a nice step forward.  I don't know what the state of 
the init script that Gentoo ships is though, I'm guessing it may diverge 
from the standard approach due to its slots implementation.
