Now the other way around .. why is so *hard* for you to type 'blah_wrapper foo del' ? if you don't need foo.
And again 'we' the devels 'know' about on howto enable/disable services and whatever but newer/new FrugalWare users does not.
_I_ don't really like all the stuff starts by default but in my opinion is better for the most 'normal' users
 != devel , != geeks
