I have had a look at dlls/advapi/services.c and found that it is pretty
incomplete. Can anybody tell what the current implementation is used for
(are there any known programs starting services?)

In particular I'd like to know what people generally think about the
usefulness of Services in Wine. 

The fact that wine cannot change user personalities and is lacking most
of the NT security concepts makes services pretty useless. 
However it may be desirable to translate services into something useful
on Unix, especially for winelib (it would be useful for the app I am
trying to port).  

Has there been a discussion yet how to set this up without compromising
system security?
