to me that looks like the best solution. I would not feel comfortable if something
was running that was not needed. I guess it was more frustrating for new or
unexperienced users if they see a process running that they do not need or
do not know why it is there. I think it will cause them shurely more time to think
or ask "why is this process running, do I need it" than realise they need to do
something to make a programm run at startup. For me, if something does not
work as I want, one of the first things I do is a "ps -e".
