Ah, the problem is that it is too late to take back "... will do so in
the background" when you noticed that daemonize() did not succeed, so
you would need a way to see if we can daemonize() before actually
doing so if you want to give different messages.

"int can_daemonize(void)" could be an answer that is nicer than
NO_POSIX_GOODIES, but I am not sure if it is worth it.
