Yes, I think I got some of the code in daemonize from the cookbook. I
had been using a little C program for that (e.g.: "daemonize python
pydaemon.py" ) but that required invoking from a shell, or remebering to
use the daemonize tool. With the daemonize module I could do it from
within python in a standard way. It may need some tweaking to make it
more portable.
