The people who are posting "show us the code" are mostly folks with long experience in the PEP process. I think you should take it as an indication that in this case the definition of "suitable API" is an "I'll know it when I've tried it" kind of thing.
I am working on ‘python-daemon’ concurrently with this PEP now, and intend to keep publishing updates to that implementation as it approaches conformance with the PEP.
What you might find useful is to avoid writing any code yourself, but see how well your proposed spec fits the existing code, of which several (potential) examples have been posted.
Fortunately I've based ‘python-daemon’ on what I determined to be the closest starting point for the well-behaved daemon behaviour.
