13 Presumably if you sent a dbus message to your service manager asking
14 it to start a daemon that doesn't count as being behind your back.
16 If you're talking about something starting at boot time, I've yet to
17 hear of a service manager that doesn't let you tell it what services
18 you want, or one that doesn't come with some set of defaults. As I
19 recall sysvinit went spawning gettys on first boot and I don't recall
20 having to tell it to do that, fortunately. :)
