The question will then be whether this unix-only module is generally useful enough to be in the stdlib. Many good modules are not.
Right. Personally, I think it's pretty easy to make a daemon on Unix.
It's pretty easy, but still fiddly enough that I'd rather use a library than worry about the details myself.
I strongly second this sentiment. It's such an oft-used recipe that it deserves a canonical, fully correct library implementation.
If this module supported both Unix and Windows, though, that would be interesting.
That would be lovely, but even a Unix-only module would be worthwhile, IMO.
Though it would probably improve its chances of getting added to the std lib.
