    77In athena-auto-update, in warn(), we check if a previous warning occurred.  The only reason we do this is so that 2 consecutive warnings is defined as a failure.  Nagios is unable to handle a condition such as "If service FOO has been in state WARN for at least N hours, change the state to FAIL."  So we generate that logic on the client (from Nagios' perspective) end.

     9We use timeout(1) due in the aptitude  --download-only code because of DebianBug:629266 and #1020.  This is a terrible idea and downloads that take  > 30m will fail.

    1517The only reason the initscript exists is because we can't invoke "lpadmin" while the CUPS server is down.  This is, arguably, a bug in CUPS.  It only affects installs over PXE (or done as root or something).  It's possible that the right thing to do is drop in a policy-rc.d during the PXE install that does permit starting the CUPS daemon.  Significant testing is required.

     21 * We scribble over check-missing-firmware because it fails on RTL8169 chipsets.  See r25352. 
     22 * We don't have `date(1)`, but we do have an NTP which answers on the `daytime` port.  `$(nc -w1 18.7.21.144 13)`
