Yes, if you're running daemontools, then multilog is hands down the way to go. Is it daemontools that really wants to be root? That might be what I'm confusing it with. Anyway, my goal was to provide a solution that fits nicely with pg_ctl's -l option, multilog didn't look like a good way to do that.
