The development of Catalyst was moving fast and I think this was a good trade off for documentation and API stabillity at this stage of development. I know you can use this reasoning as an excuse for every project and I don't have any ready theory here - but for sure it depends on the size of the project and Catalyst being quit a big one needs some more time in the 'rapid prototyping' phase. Now the documentation is improving and I believe the API is quite backward compatible.

[Corion]: ... entering the data
[Corion]: Discipulus: I don't know whether I could really do that, but the init process itself mostly launches other processes, and the whole startup is just following a path of dependencies and making sure they are all running. Which basically is what ...
[Discipulus]: when at work my time is (temporarly) owned by the firm, so i do not care (coworkers whatch movies.. I code Perl)
[Corion]: ... make already does, except for files instead of programs. But maybe with some /proc hackery, that could be eliminated and one could use plain make :-D
[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Oh, yeah :-D
