8 I'm curious what you mean by "service" here. Surely not the things
9 managed by rc-service, only root can touch them, right? Or regular
10 users via sudo, and then sudo config restricts what they can do.
12 I'm _guessing_ you mean desktop services like gnome-settings, and my
13 retort is, I don't have any of those, and I never will.
