While I am happy to see this switchover...

A) it would have be nice if you did not break the build, and had
checked for dependencies on babels and fixed those too. there was only
one... but it happened to be on code (hnetd) I am testing tomorrow
morning at 10AM PDT. A find . -type f -name Makefile | xargs grep
babels revealed that only hnetd depended on it.

B) It is not clear what else broke with hnetd with this change to
babels from babeld. The two sets of init and config scripts had grown
to differ quite a bit.

C) You missed adding ipv6-subtrees support to the init script, and as
all of openwrt has ipv6_subtrees support in the kernel, the default
should be true for this os, not the default in babel, which is false.

I do not have commit privs to the openwrt routing repo, but I will go
patch up the build and see what happens for me in a few minutes. Those
that actually have a working hnetd might want also to check to see
that it still works with the babeld package rather than the now gone
