I second this. We should concentrate on netcfg for network setup in future. 
Initscripts will just get too complicated (e.g. they don't support ipv& atm) 
while the same functionality is already provided by another package n core.

I would even completely remove the network and netfs deamon from initscripts; 
but I guess there wont be much support for this. :-)
