Note: I came up with a workaround that puts the cross-host check in the
method script, but it'd be much cleaner to do it within SMF proper.
Also, I had an old version of my SMF that included a dependency on local

eventually found I had to svccfg delete -f svc:/network/bacula, svccfg
-s svc:/network/bacula delprop mysql, then svccfg import
