The following pseudo-dependencies are listed in /etc/rc.d/*'s PROVIDE
and REQUIRE lines but do not correspond to actual started
facilities. Such dummy provides/requires are supposed to be  in all caps:


Other pseudos like LOGIN and NETWORK are handled properly.

Note that for some of these, like "tty", there is an actual script,
"ttys", and the depend should be renamed "ttys" or the script should
be renamed "tty". For others, like mail, the dependency should clearly
be named "MAIL".

This is not just a question of being nutty about a standard -- it
makes it much easier to figure out what is a pseudodependency and what
is not.
