Unit linux is considered legacy, since it has many fundamental issues.

However the old unportable 1.0.x unit will be provided as legacy unit for
linux/i386 as unit "oldlinux".

The 1.9 unix units are still a bit in flux, so oldlinux might behave 
a bid unpredicatable. I hope to correct that in the next version.
