Committed at r3862. I've changed the name of the "REV" variable to "INITSYS",
which seems clearer to me (hope it is for others too). Right now, we know that
we use the "revision" attribute for the init system, but for future
maintenance, it is better to have a more explicit name.
I've alse added the revision parameter to the xml stylesheet used for the
generation of the packages list.
