Yeah, I had thought about PHP, and I know you are good at that. I 
suppose waiting until BLFS would work, then it could be up the user to 
select which tool set is best for them. I don't exactly like that idea 
personally, but it should provide a working compromise. Gimme a day to 
figure out how to handle the Makefile and we'll see if it is a plausible 
solution or not--install_initd should be used if available (think 
upgrades) with a fallback to a predefined order if not, for new installs.
