sorry for the lame contentless reply... hope positive feedback is welcome.
i like this idea specifically a lot, and in general the addition of
start scripts (currently i'm just starting mysqld on the command line
each time i reset my mac, which is quite frustrating).
launchd is very blackboxish to me, while i know gentoo start up
scripts well. maybe a hybrid approach could be found without too much
code dup that is ideal for either?
