more tricky; kyle has a cleaned up patch but the fs-devel list tends to
be a black hole ;(

it's a total misunderstanding or excuse to claim we dropped services.
Most are started on demand instead. And really, also Fedora could
and should consider being smart about when to start them...

NFS for example should be started on the first mount (trivially
implemented via a post script on the modprobe of the nfs module)

Just throwing in the towel and say "can't do" is how you end up with a
40+ second boot time.
