Not necessary, the comments you put into that file were enough:

| # DO NOT RUN AFTER and do not run this script directly
| # in runlevel S. Instead write an initscript to call it.

And "of course" runs after but before, deleting the .clean breadcrumb files that the
former left for the latter.  Argh!
