Each zone runs a separate copy of the svc.startd process.  This
process handles the SMF stuff that lets you enable and disable
services, and must always be running.

It is 7MB RSS in size.  So on $system with 1GB RAM, and 5 zones +
global zone, I am spending 35MB RAM when I just don't need it.

What the bleepity-bleep do you need 7MB RAM for to monitor 54
processes (on my machine)?  If one of their programmers had hocked up
a Perl monstrosity it wouldn't take that much RAM....
