I do not mean to bad-mouth nosh, but I find it really necessary to note
that after skimming through `move-to-control-group.cpp', I feel quite
concerned about the coding style of nosh -- the kind of style that
significantly affects maintainability, which is largely independent of
the language used.

To put it bluntly, I think The nosh codebase is undeniably and
dramatically better than the systemd codebase, but obviously inferior to
codebase of most other daemontools-ish software we are fairly familiar
with. I really find certain aspects of nosh enlightening, eg. the way
"builtins" are supported by the `nosh' interpreter [1], so I intend this
comment to be not pure blaming, but an (not so humble) appeal to push
nosh closer to perfection.
