Default Bug#426877: Clarify what "sensible behaviour" is for init scripts

No those are functions... the main code runs without "set -e" and thus doesn't
fail on the error and the return value of the function is checked:

do_start
case "$?" in
0|1) [ "$VERBOSE" != no ] && log_end_msg 0 ;;
2) [ "$VERBOSE" != no ] && log_end_msg 1 ;;
esac


If do_start returns 0 or 1, the whole script returns "0" (hence success).
