Instead, I think that people who want a “service” would be better served by a top-level module named ‘service’, to preserve that concept as separate from the concept of a daemon.
I may be misstaken, but I think the usual desire is to have something which runs in the background and doesn't get killed when you kill the parent application or terminal which launched it.
Whatever it is implemented in terms of "daemon", "service" or anything else doesn't really matter in those cases.
