I like the processing module. I personally think that's a good
candidate for the standard library too. Personally, I think a
daemonize function is different. If anything, I think the posix
module would be a better fit.
The code I'm referring to is in the Python Cookbook. It's trivial to
provide a patch. I was just wondering if there was a reason it hadn't
been done already. I know how hard it is to get things into the
standard library, so I'm skittish.
I, for one, welcome our new Facebook overlords!
