Yowsa - when I started reading this I thought "Oh dear - silly boy
read init and saw inet" but on reading further, I see that it's a
launchd clone and plans to replace init, and inetd, and crond, and
who knows WTF else.
Really, you have to wonder why people want to change things that
aren't fundamentally broken.
Is the Debian project planning to use upstart too, or is Ubuntu going
to diverge even more radically from Debian?
Thankfully, Dapper's going to have security upgrades for 5 years, so
one can ignore this for quite some time.
TBH the project seems well named.
