i think you'll find that a lot of people DON'T like that because it
throws away valuable error/diagnostic messages reported by the daemon
itself in order to get a nicely formatted pretty green "done" or red
"failed". i.e. it's a triumph of image over substance.

we already have a good init system. it works well and has been tested &
refined over many years. it isn't broken, so don't fix it.
