:On safe strings: Have you considered using a good safe string library,
:such as stralloc?

    There are standard safe-string functions in libc already, e.g.
    asprintf() and snprintf().  The problem is with legacy code and,
    generally speaking, fixing legacy code means making as few radical
    changes as possible.
:Where can I find information about the new RC system? Personally I use
:http://smarden.org/runit/, and it is head and shoulders
:above the traditional inits. The scripts are much easier to write, plus
:you get service supervision and reliable service shutdown (no stupid pid
:files) to boot. It's just a much better design than the traditional RC

    There's no book published on it, but you might be able to search
    the FreeBSD list archives for 'rcng', or just play with it.  It's
    a fairly straight forward dependancy/scripting system.
