I hardly ever run it. It's never broken anything (neither the somewhat
horrible closed-source CLI program or the deeply horrible closed-
source HTTP not-a-daemon.)

It's never caused any trouble with anything else on the system, though I
wish the daemon was open-source and/or the damn thing supported SMART
directly like everything else (OK, *better* than everything else, I'd
like useful SMART, if that's not an oxymoron).
