Well I'm not sure where to draw the line...
do we want to still have /var/run PID functionality for example ? Or should we
leave that up to the embedded user... it could most likely be
implemented in a few lines of bash.
or maybe some sort of busybox like funcitonality with symlinks... i.e.
/etc/init.d/network -> /etc/init.d/busyinit
and the initscript takes care of the pid info in a very generic way...
just throwing out ideas.
