:I'm not sure that the implication was that RCNG should be scrapped, only
:that it should [eventually] do what runit and daemontools do, namely,
:service monitoring.

    Service monitoring is an interesting problem.  I wrote a program long
    ago which is available at:


    It was originally written to maintain sendmail and named but with a
    little cleanup and additional work to add a periodic testing function
    (e.g. to run a test script once every so often), a better 'stop'
    interface, and a unix-domain socket for communicating requests, we 
    could integrate this into RCNG to provide automatic service
    monitoring, restart, stop, and reporting features for all non-inetd
    system-started daemons. 

    It would be very easy to integrate with the RCNG varsym variables that
    are already being set.
