I'm announcing the 0.1 release of unit2run.py, which is a small
brain-damaged hack that attempts to create a ./run file from a systemd
unit. It is released under the ISC license.

The following features are available:

* It will pump out a horrifically formatted shell script. It might even be
* Sometimes the shell scripts actually work, regardless of the supervisor.

It has the following limitations:

* It only understands about 4 statements, 2 of which do *absolutely nothing*
* It laughs at [sections]. Same goes for dependency handling, socket
activation, and other systemd features. Ha-ha!
* It will eat your kittens and overwrite your existing run files in the
same directory if given the chance, so um, don't do that.
* It currently suffers from "procedural programming".
* Not if but when it breaks, you get to keep all the pieces.

Feel free to download it and have a laugh or two. Yes, this was written in
my spare time, and it shows.


P.S. make sure that there isn't already a file named "run" in the directory
you are running the script in. You wouldn't like the results, trust me.
