However, only some of those actions are "install". So that's confusing and
non-discoverable. It's also way too long, and if all of the systemd tools
start with "systemd", it's a pain for tab completion. Not a problem in
scripts, but a hassle for administration.

Like I said, I don't particularly care _what_ color it is -- although I have
a strong preference for leaving it how it was. (chkconfig and service -- or
if one tool can condense the functionality, fine).
