Thanks for getting the ball rolling!

Hoping to get some movement on this list started early, so I'm peeling off some patches from my git tree that I've had sitting around for a while. The first 6 are rudimentary cleanup -- they don't try to affect functionality, but rather are meant to clean inconsistant or questionable syntax used, as well as possibly shave off a few CPU cycles here and there.
I thought that I'll treat patches to initscripts in the following way: I'll ask everyone to post them to this mailinglist as you have done, then I'll let some time pass for people to review and ack/nack (depending on how serious the patches are) before applying them.
In this case, if there has been no objections in a few days I'll take that as a sign that everything is ok.
The final patch is a little more controversial and proposes to remove the decade old net-tools from the network service. This is a fairly straightforward change that was patched in a similar manner several years ago by James Raynor (iphitus), in response to FS #10160 which was eventually closed as "deferred".
Without having looked at the details yet, I think this initiative is great! I hope we'll get some people to review/ack this before proceeding.
