It's slow work, as SysV-style scripts usually depend on the process itself
to handle daemonizing and pid control.  I'm researching some ways around
this without compromising ending up with a fully SysV compliant script.

Ryan:  My wishlist for something like this in the following order, in terms
of commandline switches:
1.  --pidfile= (to specify where to record the pid of the process)
2.  --daemonize (to close file handles, drop controlling tty, and get 
adopted by pid1)
3.  --user=  (to drop privs to a specific user if executed by uid 0, after
pidfile has been written)

Any of the above in the next binary would bring tears of joy from me.
