  At this point I have to ask: are you using "daemontools" as a generic
name for supervision suites, or as the original suite from DJB? If the
latter, why are you advertising it over s6 or runit, which provide the
same functionality but are actually maintained ?

  (I'm not asking out of spite, I'm asking because if there's something
you find in daemontools that you don't find in s6, I want to add it.
I've gone far to make sure s6 was an improvement over daemontools in
every possible way, and if I have missed something, I want to know.)
