I don't know if this is exactly the right group, BUT: I'm writing (yet 
another) GPLed POP3/SMTP server, in python. On windows, I can install it as 
a service, which seems to work fine. On linux, how can I make it a daemon 
process that is controllable from outside? gets started at boot time? 

Has maybe someone written a common (as in: portable between win32 and unix) 
"server process" api that wraps this functionality?

Thanks, Gerson
