Well. Many init scripts just use the $OPTIONS. It works for them.

I would recommend to check if a config file exists. If there is no
/etc/sysconfig/postgrey file then use the default options.

I think that would allow for usable default options and still allow one
to thinker with the options at one's leisure.
