    that's the worst of all things to do... either make a change in ONE go,
    when you do all the changes anyway (users will remmeber 2.6.24 was the
    unification kernel, but 2.6.25 breaking stuff will be a total
    surprise)... or keep them around forever. As long as it works, nobody
    will change the scripts.
