Couple of throw-away thoughts on systemd:

  1. Does systemd have any native support for "multi-instance" stuff 
i.e. init scripts that start N processes, for N config files in a 
central location? We use a local, custom init script to run several 
radius processes to isolate potential (thankfully rare!) failures (e.g. 
our wireless/802.1x server going down is bad, but our wired/macauth 
server going down is a four-alarm disaster, so we keep them in separate 

  2. Aren't processes meant to be started in foreground and log to 

  3. It's not clear to me that any of the socket activation stuff makes 
sense for a radius server?
