This looks like it does the trick, but I am curious; is this how the

Is this how it does that?
It is what policy dictates for every package. Would be stupid to
invent something else.
So is a package broken if its configure script invokes tools that rely
on a running daemon, and the configure fails if the tools can't contact
the daemon? Like say, udevinfo?
