Except that if bazd-server isn't there, it does't mean that it's not
running. And if I didn't installed bazd-server, it's maybe to make my
custom scripts and _not_ have yours.
You can also have a case where it is installed, but not running

What I mean is that you can't make any assumptions on what's "running"
based on which package is installed.
