thanks for the fast reply.
I think there is a slight misunderstanding.

Correct, and I'm _not_ trying to add that in any way to rc.subr or to
your rc script.

Even if I'm not using it at all, your rc script will kill unrelated
tor instances, this is not limited to an ansible environment.
The goal is only to be able to have your tor package + the ansible
role on the same system without the rc script from the package
interfering with unrelated tor instances created via ansible.

That is already done.
Did this reply make the intentions clearer?
After all the proposed fix should not generate any new problem or
effort for your package, or does it?
