I thought I remembered something about the startms command option, but
alas, I haven't upgraded for a while and startms wasn't an option,
although stopms was. startout has been there a while. It's still not
convenient for me to upgrade, but would it be possible to extract the
init script only from the latest and use it if I tweak it to match what
I'm running now?
