I'm now looking at the Terabithia package for the first time in years. 
My first reaction is, wth?

Installing the xymon package on my server has disabled chronyd and 
installed (but not started) ntpd. why?! If I hadn't read through the 
list of packages it was going to grab, and understand the significance 
of this one, I'd be going blindly forward with an un-synchronized system 

Now I wonder how many other of my services it has disabled or replaced. 
I feel like I've just walked into a mine field :(

Do things because you should, not just because you can.
