Yep, that's it exactly. The only remaining issue is defining the 
semantics for what should be done in these cases:

- an unknown service is specified (should any of the others be run, or 
none at all?)

- a service script fails (returns non-zero)... should we rollback the 
others, or leave them alone? should we continue on running any remaining 
service scripts, or punt?
