How about taking all the target specific stuff out of the init.d directory
and into a separate directory in /etc? That way boot scripts can be updated
without having to fiddle with the settings. Eg:

in /etc/init.d/ethnet:
. /etc/config/ethnet
...

and in /etc/config/ethnet:
IP_ADDRESS=1.2.3.4
NETMASK=255.255.240.0
...

Its not the winning that counts, its the taking apart.
