Hi Steve,

please don't let me say things that I have not said. I don't share
that philosophy, at all. To be precise, I have said that in 99.9999%
of the cases supervision is just *useless*. I simply can't see the
point for it.

For those cases in which supervision *really* matters, and I mean,
where a failing process means damage to device, people, experiments,
buildings, etc.  then the only sensible thing is to not use unix, at
all, since it does not have a safe way of providing supervision. If
you *must* to use unix for those critical tasks, then most of the
supervision *has* to be done by pid1.

The rest of your email has been cut out, since it was based on the
assumptions that I actually need a supervisor, which is false, and
that I need help to find a good one, which does not make sense since
the former one is false :)
