I've made limited progress using m4, but may be re-inventing the wheel.

I've got a mostly working script called "service-extra" that does some of the same stuff.

For those who aren't redhat aficionados, Redhat has a script called "service", which basically runs "/etc/rc.d/init.d/$1 $2". The idea is that you go eg. "service httpd restart", instead of typing in the full thing. I called mine "service-extra", because they're actions that I'd like to see in "service" someday. It has 3 actions:
permstart: start + chkconfig on
permstop: stop + chkconfig off
clean-restart: stop, kill all processes, start

Anyway, I run this script from shellcommands. It doesn't really answer your question, but I thought it might interest.
