The stunnel4 package has start/stop scripts, but the stunnel 3 package
doesn't.  This actually makes sense, because rather than using a config
file, you specify the arguments on the command line, which isn't
particularly well suited to a start script.  I wrote two, stunnel-client
and stunnel-server (since you might want to run both to aggregate
connections) and put all the relevant variables (destination hostnames,
port numbers, etc.) in /etc/default/.  

I can send them to you off-list if you like, but I don't imagine the
stunnel 3 packages will be maintained much longer, so it might not be
worth the effort.
