Oh BABY!  I like.  I like mucho!

I've just cobbled together an "lcx-waiton-init" script that incorporates
that.  After starting a container, running that script will monitor the
container and, if it reboots it, restart the container and continue
monitoring it, with a new log file (my peculiarity).  If it halts, it
shuts the container down and terminates.  It adds a double quiet option
and a timeout option to the inotifywait just in case.  I'm going to
integrate that into my own startup wrapper scripts so it runs
automatically when a container is started.

Mui Bien!  Gracias!
