	Might I restate that as 
	1) "there should be one way to do the adiminstrative 
	   operations", and
	2) "the mechanism should have at least one interface
	   that can be used without a daemon in operation".

	The first enables the second, which ensures that
	you can acheive the same end: I'll ignore the 
	debate about single-command vs seperation of
	function (;-))
