There might also be a bug in vm.sh.

If you look closely in /usr/share/cluster, the definition of <service is
an agent itself. depend and depend_mode come from that definition.

Since we never really supported service dependency and that vm can
operate at the same level of service, it's possible that vm.sh needs
patching for that to work the way digimer needs.

But then, even if patched, it would only work for start use case. Stop
still needs some extra work.
