Description of problem:
The daemon function currently sets the core dump size to 0 unconditionally. It
would be nice to have a --daemon argument which could be passed to it so
application developers can ship "debug" packages which use that to generate core
dumps of a misbehaving application. Currently, the application developer has to
directly modify /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions, which changes its hash. And since
initscripts is a base package, security automation at some sites interpret this
as sign of a possible intrusion.
