I am a bit disappointed by some of the responses I saw.  Many of them
exhibit the NIH ("not invented here") syndrome.  Some are just
argumentative with no useful content.  Some make invalid assumptions.
Some argue that the idea should be rejected just because some specific
implementation might be flawed.

Nobody has come up with any any real reason why the user should not at a
glance be able to tell which boot-time services failed and which ones
