Subject: /etc/init.d/functions and Red Hat compat.


I noticed a very minor compatibility issue with /etc/init.d/functions
and Red Hat initscripts. Some Red Hat package initscripts
(eg. squid errata package) use echo_success / echo_failure when
starting/stopping daemons (AFAIK these just print the green OK/red

Owl functions doesn't have these two functions, so the
initscript complains about missing function.

Something like this should be sufficient:
echo_success() {
	echo "success"

echo_failure() {
	echo "failure"
