This when referring to the actual daemon/binary -- in contexts like, "When

(I have deep-seeded personal issues with binary names in caps when the
binary itself isn't, and other things like UNIX (inferring that it's an
acronym) or The Internet instead of the internet -- I'm a journo though,
and admit my pickiness is a terribly irritating trait ;))
