When people start talking about such functionalities I only ever see
Daemontools mentioned. I never used it, but from your description it
seems to have some shortcomings.
One point in zdaemon's favor that I forgot about in my original
is that it has a (also undocumented) subclassing API that allows
to add new commands. We certainly leverage this to provide the
supervisor2 looks very cool. But it is also "ours" in some sense.
is much bigger than zdaemon. It looks like like something that
often choose over zdaemon. zdaemon is still attractive to me over
because it is smaller, less ambitious and I already understand
it. :) And, of course,
there are the good backward compatibility arguments that you make.
So with all that said, what's the use case for switching zdaemon out
for something else? What other functionalities are *you* looking for?
I don't think it ever caused anyone any headache apart from maybe
working around different ways in which forking/daemonizing is handled
on some platforms (OS X comes to mind).
