Custom service

It is a special view in the service module (see later), it provides a
possibility to define start/stop control for a custom service (a third
party application, e.g. a database server). The vendor defines what should
be called to start/stop the service.

It is good to not look at Custom service just as some selected LSB service,
but more as a specific vendor application, he would like to operate directly
from the control panel. As Ladislav writes, "a third party application, e.g.
a database server".

The initial WebYaST release for appliances will only show the custom
services module. This should prevent any confusions.

For openSUSE 11.2 (or SLE11 SP1), the custom service module won't make
sense, so it shouldn't be installed on those systems.

Going forward (read: WebYaST 2.0 for Appliances) we'll have to find a
way to integrate both modules.
