If you're going to check it in, do the libbb consolidation work first.  And 
then give the consolidated version the CONFIG_ option.  (Put the config guard 
in the headers, so it either defines a function prototype the pidfile 
functions, or #defines empty macros for them).

Given that: yeah, thumbs up.  Sounds cool. :)
