This PEP addresses the case where a daemon is specifically what the
I would like it to *also* be useful as the obvious thing to use for
implementing a service on Unix, but it is designed to also allow for
the case when a service is *not* what the programmer wants.

A service package would be ideal for the use case you suggest. That's
not what this PEP proposes, though.
