There is a related concept in many systems, called a “service”. A service differs from the model in this PEP, in that rather than having the current program continue to run as a daemon process, a service starts an additional process to run in the background, and the current process communicates with that additional process via some defined channels.
In my opinion, the difference between a daemon and a service is just a by-product of the difference between fork and CreateProcess. If the multiprocessing package can solve this problem, I don't see why a daemon/service package wouldn't be able to, too.
As of 2009-01-26, the package is under active development and is not yet a full implementation of this PEP.
I'm still confused why there's a PEP before there's a stable implementation and a base of users.
