You are right that it's immediately visible that some services failed,
but one thing is annoying:

Starting foo						[OK]
Starfing bar						[FAILED]
Starting baz						[OK]

When you notice that something failed, you need to move the point you're
looking at (the red [FAILED]) _all_the_way_across_the_screen_ to the
name of the service, to know what failed.

We need to think of a different way to highlight that (maybe invert
the colour of the spaces between the service name and the [WHATEVER]?)
