A friend of mine was working on a project for a while where all the daemons
were always started in scripts that looped. There were no logs of any sort
if a daemon crashed. No one thought this was weird, but they were a little
unsure of how to stop a running daemon.
I am *SO* glad I don't have to work in that part of the world. :)
