Hey Jan,

Thanks for the patches.  Because this is a pretty big change (will be
bigger if I use patch 9/9), I'll only apply to the head branch.  I hope
to release 0.8.1 beta in the not to distant future.

As a whole, I think all the patches are fine.  I actually don't have an
issue for patch 9/9.  However, it conflicts with a previous Redhat
patch :-)  I had the naming scheme you propose in the patch (not having
freeipmi prefixed in front of init scripts and such).  However, Ben
Woodard @ Redhat said I had to put the prefix in front to pass rpmlint
which requires the prefix for naming daemons and init scripts.

I've CCed Ben.  Perhaps you guys can debate what takes priority.  I'm
fine with either one.  But since two Redhat requests are conflicting,
I'm not sure which distro rule wins out :-)
