  I didn't say that, duh. I said it was a hard problem to solve in the general
case, that there was no simple shortcut, and that the framework needed to
support more flexible weaving of one-time initialization and service startup.
That doesn't mean converting as many scripts as possible from SysV to a
supervision scheme isn't worth doing - on the contrary, it's a very laudable
initiative, and thanks for the effort you're putting in! Just don't expect
perfect results for now - and please stay tuned, because I'll try to improve
the framework soon, and hopefully make your work easier.
