What return values? My RedHat 7.1 system didn't print any. I just get a
neat column of "[  OK  ]" entries like this:
Shutting down MailScanner daemons:
               MailScanner:                                 [  OK  ]
               incoming sendmail:                           [  OK  ]
               outgoing sendmail:                           [  OK  ]
(view that in a fixed-width font)

I didn't capitalise incoming and outgoing as they are not product names
which are normally capitalised, and they aren't the start of a statement.

If we're getting down to the number of capital letters the init.d script
prints, I guess the code must be working okay... :)
