After a long session hacking initscripts today, I realized that we are
relying on tput to get ansi control characters. This is not bad except
that tput is in /usr/bin/ and /usr may not be available to use before
mounting filesystems. There is a couple solutions as i see it:
1. move tput from /usr/bin to /bin in the terminfo-bin package
2. fall back to hardcoded ansi control characters (may not work on some
3. other solution...
What do you think?
