I'm announcing the initial release of rc-shim, a small script that is useful for adding supervision to existing installations using SysV-styled rc scripts.

The script replaces existing scripts in /etc/init.d with a shim that interfaces to an existing supervisor. It should support any daemontools-alike supervisor. You will need to supply your own run scripts for this to work.

The first release should be considered experimental. It has had only minor testing with a live system, and the command set is limited. Future releases will have additional testing and incremental improvements. Suggestions are welcome.

The script can be found here:
