We could then still use
'start-stop-daemon --background daemon', can't we?
It's not as if it's hard to background a service which doesn't; it's
the other way round that is difficult. And getting the I/O right
Note that some init systems (such as minit) expect daemons to use
stdout/stderr for logging.
So getting a good handling of I/O (btw, one thing where sysvinit
really sucks...) right is one of the more difficult things here.
