[SASAG] Even more init processes to learn...

Now in addition to Apple's launchd and Sun's SMF and all the other
smaller ones (e.g. init-ng, runit, etc.), Ubuntu has decided to create
their own init process. They have a nice write up
(https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReplacementInitDiscussion) comparing their idea
with the others, but it does look like instead of having BSD or System V
init processes, we will have at a minimum 5 major init processes to
learn (BSD, Apple, Sun, Ubuntu, System V) for folks with multiple
platforms. Makes cross platform management even more fun...
