But, you use 'initctl' in your OCF which also relies on dbus (libdbus,
to be correct; in both cases running dbus is not a requirement). Reason
why we didn't use initctl, grep, awk and company, when we developed the
upstart RAexec, was cause doing it that way was slower. And ugly :)

I guess I'm just interested what do you find wrong or bad with how
current upstart RAexec is done?
