Almost all daemons are optional.  In general, I'd like to be able to
install a daemon, read the docs for a few weeks, and only then
activate it.  Righnt now, I have to edit the /etc/rc2.d links /and/
edit all the /etc/cron.*/<package> files that send me email for these
unpacked yet unconfigured packages.  Not a BIG deal ... but it would
be nice if a better mechanism were available.
