Well, I try to limit the number of daemons running, too, but you have to
stop thinking of daemons as unnecessary processes and just consider (at
least some of them) as userspace kernel extensions.  A large number of
daemons (and particularly the ones responsible for the recent explosion of
daemons) are doing things that _used_ to be done in the kernel.  No you
probably don't need automatic printer detection, but do you really have a
daemon that _only_ does that?
