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.
I think you could have a much better chance if you revise the PEP proposal by also considering Windows' daemon (i.e. Windows Service). Make it so that Unix's and Unix-like's daemon and Windows Service have as similar interface as possible (then create the implementation, caveat: "it's not going to be me").
