You shouldn't need to Google to be sure of that. Thankyou for saving me

Cool so the statement from the design document.

"So, let's get rid of shell scripts in the boot process!"

Is more like reduce than get rid. In fact aside from the copying and
symlinking it may be quicker than the current arch system to add a
custom service. Though it may take longer to be sure of that
initially :-).


 Why not do something good every day and install BOINC.
