While we're on the subject of StartupItems/LaunchDaemons, I had a
quick question as well: is there any reason startup is always passed
through daemondo? I understand that, in some cases, it's the only
viable option. However, in others, I know of no reason this is
necessary. I've been using launchd directly with lighttpd, mysql5,
and ccxstream for some time with no adverse affects; see:
Is there some way of providing support for this alternate type of
startup item to Tiger installations? It's not that important now,
though it would be necessary if, for example, lighttpd were ever to
support launchd-style port selection.
(It's perfectly understandable if the answer is, "we'll think about
it when Leopard comes out and we only target launchd")
