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.
