 Perhaps we should assimilate "chkconfig" then?  Embrace and extend

 I kind of like that [Ok] green lights thing they do with the init.d
 output also.  If that is accomplished in a suitably object oriented
 style; that is, through a documented call interface... the actual
 output routine can be changed and made to do special things.

 What ever got done with that dependancy based init script setup that
 got tossed around for a while?  Has anyone ever implemented it?

I was Linux when Linux wasn't cool.
