Hi Dave,

Thanks for getting the ball rolling!

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.

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.
