The periodic scripts are badly in need of attention, so effort in that
area is much appreciated.

Regarding your patch, rather than copying functions from rc.subr, why
not just source it? Yes, you will get more than you need, but I think
that the virtue of not having to maintain the same code in 2 places far
outweighs that minor drawback.
