Ok, sounds reasonable to me.

I can take this one. It´s relatively simple and I believe I have enough
knowledge. Worst case scenario, I can ssh to your boxes to test. I just
like to avoid spending time doing too many sysadmin tasks to setup them up.

Ok, it should be pretty easy.

We can theoretically replace both. A distro-agnostic init script, like
we did for cman, can run without changes on redhat, fedora, debian and
ubuntu (those I have tested successfully). I am pretty sure given the
generic rpm/deb bits also other distros can use it without modifications.
