I'm not really qualified to comment on the code but I'm aware that
there are lot of ways to get this wrong so please do your homework if
you haven't done so already. Your post seems like a good start. :)

runit seems highly regarded and we use it at work on CentOS to allow
users of the same UNIX group to manage a collection of processes
without requiring root or sudo. I wasn't aware of s6 at the time but
I've heard that's also good and this makes an interesting read.


I wonder if it might even make more sense to reuse one of these instead
of reinventing the wheel. They are both extremely lightweight. If you
feel you can do better though then go for it!
