JJ -

I've used supervisor (after Drew mentioned it) to good success. I
didn't bother coding up a proper rc script - just dropping a startup
line in /etc/rc.local gets it going on bootup and I use the
supervisorctl shell when I need to reload the config, restart the
supervisor process, etc. This mitigates not having
`/etc/init.d/supervisort restart` available...
