Re: launchd and lookupd

I really feel that Debian is all about freedom of choice. launchd is a
great tool and you should be able to use it if you want to, so
including it in Debian is a Good Idea, IMHO of course. You should not
decide for _other_ people what will suit their needs.
BTW someone could create a very interesting desktop distibution using
these tools

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.
