I didn't mean I didn't like his patch. I'm sure it does the right
thing as far as it goes. It's just that /etc/init.d/functions is
obsolete, and should be replaced with an empty file so that people
stop thinking it's useful :-).
It shouldn't be removed until all the packages that source it have
been updated not to do so, or they'll all fall over. (None of them
actually *use* any of the functions in it.)
