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.
