You mean something like this patch? Basically, all I did was save $IFS,
reset it to just a comma, and insert a for loop around the old code that
checked for the existence of the script, then ran it. Then I restored
$IFS (not that it matters, but oh well).
(Sorry Alexander, but I saw something I could do, and did it. Hope you
don't mind too much. ;-))
Note: This hasn't been fully tested as part of a boot, but I did run
through the for loop and the check inside it (everything except actually
running the services/* scripts) on suitable variables, and it does seem
to work the same. This was done from a plain old bash session. All the
same, it would probably be good if somebody else gave it a quick
Also, I could only test it with bash, so I'm not entirely sure that
it'll work with ash (though I think it will).
