[Slackbuilds-users] Apcupsd patches - are they necessary?

As the spirit of SBo appears to be having as few patches as possible, I 
was wondering if the two patches included with apcupsd are really 
necessary. As the comments in the patches themselves show, they are 
really nitpicky changes to the upstream startup scripts - so doing away 
with them wouldn't alter the functionality of the software, as far as I 
can tell.

Also, I'm not too sure about the "create_lock_dir_in_init_script.diff" 
patch. Like other dirs used by the software, such as those under 
/var/run, /var/lock, /var/log, other SBo packages seem to created them 
during the installation (probably in doinst.sh) - not every time the 
software is started, in the init script. But then again, maybe I am 
being nitpicky myself :-)
