It is not a good idea to replace multiple system utilities with one.
Right now I can install a different cron or inetd or atd, or I can
remove them. I don't think launchd is a viable alternative to all these
programs since it tries to do too much.

There are positives for apple for doing this, but I don't think they
translate to an open distribution like Debian.
