Sure!

My experiments extend purely to the initscripts. There's a LOT of scope
for parallelism there. I wrote this:

So now I run all startup scripts through it and non by the usual
sequence:

	[~]kirsty*> chkconfig --list|grep :on
	[~]kirsty*1> 

Startup is MUCH faster.

The example config file is out of date; I've switched laptops and extended
things somewhat, and have dispensed with ifup, replacing it with direct
ifconfig and route calls.

Actually, it's only 'evolution in action' if they haven't spawned yet.

Not at all, because they might have spawned again had not the hand of
fate intervened.  I consider such cases a partial victory, at least.
