Sorry, I was too sleepy yesterday when I replied "good idea" - it's not
good because if service started this way will crash - pause command won't
exit and thus service won't be restarted… and we here use runit exactly to
avoid this sort of issues, usual for /etc/init.d/ scripts.

So, for now my workaround with monkey-patching ejabberdctl to remove
-detach param is only way to correctly run ejabberd under runit (well, proposed by Colin Booth probably will work
too, but… well… it's really horrible :) - but probably testing port with
`ss -lnt | grep -q ':5222 '` will make it less horrible).

			WBR, Alex.
