Hi guys,

A new initscripts package is in testing.

Please test and signoff.

Big changes:

1) We gain support for iproute2, and net-tools is now optional (thanks
to Dave Reisner). If you don't update your rc.conf, everything should
work as before (using net-tools), pleas shout if it does not.

2) MOD_AUTOLOAD is deprecated (always leave it set to "yes")

3) blacklisting modules in the MODULES array is no longer supported,
use modprobe's native blacklisting instead (see 'man modprobe.conf').
An announcement will be made about this before moving to core.

Otherwise there are some bugfixes, and quite a bit of improvements made to rc.d.
