fai2.6.2, simple examples

I would like to be able to build my FAICONFIGDIR upon the simple examples, in
other words, I would like the simple examples to be the FAI default CONFIGDIR
on top I can add my changes.
What's your opinion on that ? If you agree, I would prepare the needed patches
To be able to use the simple examples as a default starting point, I would
like to see these small changes:
scripts/DEFAULTS/S01 has "ifclass DEMO && ..." as it's last line, which means
it fails if DEMO is not a class.
class/LAST.var is gone, so FAI_ACTION is not set from FAICONFGIDIR anymore.
(within the simple examples.)
package_config/DEFAULT, paragraph "PACKAGES install NETTOOLS" includes
dhcpdump and nictools-pci - both are not available on powerpc. This is no big
deal, as no error occurs.
But package_config/DEFAULT also installs some packages I don't want at all,
for example rstatd - if the class FAISERVER is set, rsh-server gets installed
as well... There are more packages, so I helped myself by adding a GENERIC
class which removes these packages.
Also scripts/DEFAULTS/S20 creates a roott-account and makes the floppy and
cdrom devices usable by anybody - which are nice examples, but in my opinion
should go inside the advanced examples.
And I want inetd's time service - like all the other - to be disabled by
scripts/NETWORK/S10 - the fix is easy, replace 'HashCommentLinesContaining
"daytime"' with 'HashCommentLinesContaining "time"'.
P.S: mail resent, as i've used a wrong from:-adress in my first post.
