Also Firestarter, but calling either of them "standard" in this context
would be a stretch. At least s-c-f is actually distruibuted with the
system, which is a pretty good criterion for "standard" in my book.

I used to use Firestarter on my desktop but with later versions of s-c-f
I found I didn't need it. YMMV of course.
