Hmm, that's filed against 1.6.0 which is pretty ancient. However, it's
still current:

matthew at mrnibble:~$ dpkg -c
/home/matthew/Download/rabbitmq-server_1.7.2-1_all.deb | grep INSTALL
-rw-r--r-- root/root     23346 2010-02-15 16:01

I'll file a bug internally to get this fixed in the next release - looks
to me like it still exists in our source tree.

Yup, again looks valid - we seem to have blank lines for these cases:
# Default-Start:
# Default-Stop:
it's possible that there's a reason for that, but I'll check and get it
fixed if not.

Yeah, our configuration system isn't in the best of health, and related
documentation is anemic at best. We have a pretty high priority bug open
to sort all of this out but it's unlikely to make it for the next major
