Nothing solves every problem. Supervision solves the 'Oops, something
crashed, and needs to be restarted' problem. If my nearby nuclear power
plant's reactor monitoring software running on a Unix box gets killed
due to a memory leak, I want it restarted immediately, not wait for the
administrator to find out by the time the reactor melts down. All fault
tolerant systems have some kind of supervision in software. Nobody would
hire you to run one of them.
