redhat-lsb-core packages the standardized lsb init script functions; these
source things from /etc/init.d/functions, but don't have an explicit
requirement on that file. That should be fixed; then things can be moved

It, of course, does not solve the problem that most random Red
Hat/Fedora-specific SysV scripts out there source that file without any
particular requirements, even if they are started by systemd.
