pypy is doing pretty well but we're actually wandering a bit off the
point.  An appliance may well want to modify the initscripts of the
services it starts.  If you have to compile those with Haskell or gcc or
python then they need to be on the appliance.

A stateless box could potentially suffer from the same issue if
modifying the initscripts (temporarily) is a desired ability.
