} Yep can't get this to work , but not a big priority .
Ah. Hadn't actually looked closely at /etc/init.d/httpd, there is a
bit more to the issue than I thought.

I'm implying that the completions only allow for the actions that are
supported generically by any/all [or at least most] scripts to be
found in /etc/init.d, and that /etc/init.d/httpd adds several that are
unique. If you attempt to complete after "service foo", then _init_d
looks for /etc/init.d/foo -- and if it finds it, it scans through that
file looking for "case" branches matching start, stop, status, etc.
It then offers whichever case-branches it finds as the completions.
/etc/init.d/httpd not only has case-branches that _init_d is not even
looking for, it also has case-branches that use syntax that the case-
branch search in _init_d won't match even if looking for the correct
words. _init_d wants every case to look like " start)" or " stop)"
etc., but http has " graceful|help|configtest|fullstatus)" all in
one combined branch [at least in my copy]. _init_d is unprepared to
deal with that.
This is a situation in which a "good enough" generic completion was
created and special cases are *way* outside of what it covers; there
is no simple correction.
