First, 'task' already means something else in fusionventory context.
Second, it largely refers to a specific way of scheduling agent 
execution (cron task/scheduled task), excluding running the agent 
manually. Hence my poing of 'direct' vs 'indirect'.

Notice the current lack of consistency of binary names with execution modes:
./fusionventory-agent => running the agent (directly)
./fusionventory-agent -d => running the agent daemon
./fusionventory-agent-win32-service => running the agent service

Better way of naming binaries:
./fusionventory-agent   => running the agent
./fusionventory-daemon  => running the agent daemon (unix only)
./fusionventory-service => running the agent service (windows only)
