I really like how easy it is to daemonize something (run it in the
foreground and let uselessd handle the daemonizing). I really like how
good it is at tracking PIDs and the potential advantages of cgroups.
It's actually got an event based init system to handle dependencies.
I think it breathes new life into how to start up systems, and it can
do those parts really well, it's all the extra crap I don't like.
Kind of like how daemontools can be used, but I like this more. I
actually prefer the simple config file format instead of the shell
scripts all the time. Most of the time shell scripts aren't even needed.
Mostly IMHO, but I like it :)
