I've tryed to write a Initscript with this documentation.
It would be helpful if you add that you have to add options after two -- when you use start-stop-daemon.
like this: start-stop-daemon --start --exec /usr/bin/rsync --pidfile /var/run/rsyncd.pid -- --daemon ${RSYNC_OPTS}
instead of start-stop-daemon --start --exec '/usr/bin/rsync --daemon ${RSYNC_OPTS}' --pidfile /var/run/rsyncd.pid.
The most users will know it but mybe not everyone. Especially these ones who need this documentation can have problems like me.
It's also missing in the German documentation.

Please create a bug for the docs team to look at.

On the other hand, this exact thing is mentioned on the second line of the start-stop-daemon manpage...
