Obviously I was thinking in something else when I wrote that, because
what I wanted to say but failed, was that I suggested that the RPM
hackers could *add* such a thing to the initscript -- not that it

write the above paragraph in a coherent manner (rewrote it twice
already).  I hope you understand it anyway :-)

Yeah, that one :-)
