[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...
