IPA modifies various configuration files and starts/stops services on both server and client sides. These configuration files may be installed in different places and services may use different mechanisms for actual start/stop process.
Refactor FreeIPA code to allow abstracting all calls to external processes and dependencies on modification of system-wide configuration. A platform provider would give its own implementation of those methods and FreeIPA would use it based on what's built in packaging process.
See https://www.redhat.com/archives/freeipa-devel/2011-July/msg00306.html for detailed proposal.
Pushing to 2.1.2 so we have more time for thorough testing.
