Not only it's a completely different API - it requires pywin32 which is not in the stdlib. [skip] +1 for unix-only daemonization, -1 for making a universal unix/w32 API. It's not hard to abstract a general service interface Do you propose to include pywin32 into python? Ummm.. Python already has a slew of windows-specific code in it. You could -- if it seemed suitable -- copy the pywin32 code with appropriate attribution, but you don't need the whole thing. And you don't necessarily need it at all.
I think adding the windows services functionality distracts from the reasonable goal of the PEP Ben is proposing.
I'm inclined to agree with you. Or at least I think a PEP proposing a cross-platform daemon/service framework would be quite different from the one Ben is authoring.
I was really just commenting on Oleg's suggestion that anything making use of win32 code needed to use pywin32.
