A problem arises if there is a chain of services. One doesn't want to restart
each one, one at a time. One wants to stop them all in reverse order and then
start them again in order. The current runlevel mechanism does that. A simple
"try-restart" would not.
So we are not going to support "floating" services.
These issues will be solved in a better way when a new dependency-based service
management system is introduced.
