  Hello development folks,

the following patch is the first attempt of cleaning the all shell scripts we
use in and around IPFire 2.x, which is necessary as they contain quite some glitches
(most of them are aesthetic or balancing ones, but some might be more severe,
especially when it comes to malfunctions due to unexpected input) and IPFire 3.x
probably will not be arriving that fast.

In other words, there is no sense in delaying the inevitable.

There is an umbrealla bug for this task (#12398) assigned to my humble self, but
to make sure my changes are welcomed by the development community, I start with
the hostapd initscript and wait for comments. If they are positive, I plan to
clean up all the 132 shell scripts one by one.

Please refer to #12398 for further information about the progress and what I am
going to do. Patches and commits will be tracked there.

Looking forward to your opinions.

Thanks, and best regards,
Peter Müller
