After thinking further about this, I now agree with what Jeff
suggested and what you say above, John. I think we should simply
develop a set of generic shell scripts and init scripts and nothing
more (beyond a Windoze service, that is). We also need to encourage
users to contribute their customizations to these scripts for
additional platforms.
