If you haven't heard of DBus activation yet, read up on it.

When it comes to expanding the core feature set of Fedora, though, 
Fedora 8 has a lot to offer. Aboutboul explained that a new dbus service 
launch service will aim to cut down boot time by minimizing the number 
of services that start when a machine powers up.

On the identity side, Fedora 8 will include something called freeIPA 
(Identity, Policy, Audit), which is intended to be an easy way for 
system administrators to install, setup and administer centralized 
identity management and authentication.
