                     18: [Launchd](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Launchd) is a MacOS/X utility that is used to start and control daemons similar to init(8), but much more powerful. There was an effort to port launchd to FreeBSD, but it seems to be [abandoned](http://wiki.freebsd.org/launchd). We should first investigate what happened to the FreeBSD effort to avoid duplicating work. The port is not trivial because launchd uses a lot of mach features.
