Services are ordinary processes and could in theory be started by
anyone. However, given that GNUnet has like 50+ of them, and that some
are optional, ARM was created to simplify starting those that are needed
"on demand" and to handle crashes by automatically restarting crashed
services. But there is no requirement to use ARM at all, in theory an OS
could decide to not even deploy ARM and run all GNUnet services via say
systemd, upstart, sys5init, or the like.
