There's no documentation and from the implementation it's not clear
either. Since people will hopefully want to port the platform code, it
would be good to document this.
Also, I think the current implementation is wrong, but I can't know
is_installed() supposed to handle system-specific details of software
availability. We wanted to avoid embedding package manager-specific
knowledge which might not be possible to use during upgrades (to avoid

So, for httpd it is correctly reporting that the service is installed.
Thanks for clearing it up.
As far as I can see, the install() method counterintuitively assumes
that is_installed()==True, and configures the system so that enable()
can be called (e.g. install() does `chkconfig --add` and enable() does
`chkconfig on`). Is that also correct?
