User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux)

Description of problem:
Howdy. Various network services have various, differently named syntax checkers. There's 'testparm' for samba, 'apachectl configtest' for apache httpd, and 'named-checkzone' for BIND. 

It'd be nice if there was a standard way to run the syntax checker for a given service. 

A parameter for the service command to do this, that looked for a syntax checker in the header of the services sysv initscript would be useful. If a service doesn't have a syntax checker, print a message saying this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Attempt to remember a given services syntax checker
