the plan would be that you would have to provide your own scripts, with a
start and stop option.

if the daemon architecture is acceptable (technically) then a default set
of scripts will have to be provided to start and stop the msrpc services

of course, kill -TERM only works as root or as the user that started a
service, therefore you cannot just terminate services as an anomymous
