Better like jail is done. I like the fact that jail_list is what is started 
upon startup but you can have many more jail_foo defined. Removing one from 
the list will disable it on boot, but it is still enabled by itself, so 
that /etc/rc.d/jail start foo is still valid.


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
