Since this is new nothing uses it at this point. But the general idea is
that things that are systemwide services could be launched on demand
when they first get a message (i.e. first use) rather than on init time.
A simple example of this would be something like cups. For client
machines there is no need to start cups on init. Another example would
be hardware specific daemons like what some hp printers/scanners has.
