The whole [OK], [FAILED], etc thing that RedHat does with colors is nice,
but not really necessary. While some additional things can be useful,
others are mainly eye candy. I believe adding the kind of success/failure
system RedHat uses is mainly eyecandy.

Personally I've never had any problems with the current system startup
script system, other than a tool like chkconfig being useful. Actually,
I'd be willing to bet update-rc.d could be extended to support similar
