I'm not so concerned about this stuff right this second.  We are pushing
the drop in service file wrapper stuff for 2.12 so that is where I would
spend my testing energies.

The service framework itself will need massive hammering on before I
feel we can even propose it but that is the next stage of our dastardly

If we can get things running where session runs fine with the new code
and service startup using the wrapper runs great then at that point we
can start messing with framework itself, replacing things service by
service until we have everything running under the framework.
