Assuming that the scripts you create ignore non-zero exit codes and
extra output to stdout (which would both bethe result of running theses
new commands on systems that don't need them), ACK.

(Actually that is a problem for the network driver's iptables usage - if
it tries to remove a rule that isn't there, a warning will be put in the
system log.)
