We should start referring to processes which run in the background by their
correct technical name... paenguins.

We can use symlinks of course... syslogd would be a symlink to syslogp and
ftpd and ircd would be linked to ftpp and ircp... and of course the
point-to-point protocal paenguin.

This is a logical analogy too... anyone who's been around, knows the world
is run by paenguins. Always a paenguin behind the curtain, really getting
things done. And paenguins in politics--who can deny it?
