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!
