Don't they really need different config files for things like which port 
to bind to anyway?  Using different init scripts instead of links would 
give you a place to specify that - or you could use the RedHat-style 
scheme of extrapolating specific variable settings into files that match 
the service name under /etc/sysconfig to keep local changes out of the 
distributed init and config files.
