Another cosmetic thing.... make it /usr/lib/arch (no linux), just to
be generic, and possibly drop it to /lib.... I don't see any harm in
it being there.

i hope to further seperate the networking core out of the networking
scripts so it contains sourceable functions that any script can use.
Currently it's seperate, but because of issues in bash, it isnt
sourceable. This could also be included in /lib/arch.
