Maybe I'm missing something but most of these scripts simply start the programs
or do a killall to stop them. Could you not simply get a process list from
/proc and "do the right thing" ?

'course that UNIX wpuld need procfs and you wouldn't have all the options to
start... nevermind...

How do I get on samba-technical? ;-)
