Huh. Thank you guys a lot. I took a glance (albeit a rather long one)
and decided that my users will have to install cygwin if they want to
use my script. Service handling is just a bit to complicated (after
creating UNIX daemon with 2 consecutive forks), and I'm not going to
be paid for this :-D

"Now the storm has passed over me
I'm left to drift on a dead calm sea
And watch her forever through the cracks in the beams
Nailed across the doorways of the bedrooms of my dreams"
