The problem is that most of those service dependency stuff ignores the
fact that daemons may need some time to really become available for
service. They just start a service and don't have a way to check if
the service is really available. Combined with missing failure
handling (like starting a service, noticing that the service terminated
because another required service was not yet available, wait a few
seconds, and try again automatically), such service dependencies are
pretty useless if reliability is a requirement.
