Those can serve as references and starting points, but I don't think
either one is complete, and in Avery's case, that can mean you don't
know whether a given daemon's run script and environment was complete
or not. In tokiclover's case, that github page implies that the only run
scripts he had were for the gettys, and that's pretty straightforward
(and well known) anyway.

As I remember, before he had to put it aside for awhile, Avery was
working on new ways of testing whether needed daemons (like the
network) were really functional. That would have been huge.

Another source of daemon startup scripts his here:
