/etc/init.d/vboxautostart-service stop has no effect

On my Debian server (squeeze) I upgraded to VirtualBox 4.2. I was especially interested in 4.2 because of its new "autostart" feature. I was finally able to setup that feature (well, you could say there is some room for improvement in the official documentation) and all machines that are supposed to start automatically are started in the expected order when running script /etc/init.d/vboxautostart-service with the start option.

However, running /etc/init.d/vboxautostart-service stop has no effect at all. Indeed, in that script, almost the complete functionality of function stop() is commented out and replaced by a single call to exit 0.

What is the reason for disabling the stop command? Was this by accident or intentionally?

This was intentionally as the stop feature was not complete in time for 4.2, sorry for that.
