Daemon strategy

We’ve recently stopped building Windows services (Python or any other type)
and started using the NSSM service manager.
Takes a normal Windows application and runs it as a service.
The NSSM service manager provides great command-line support for
installing, configuring, and controlling Windows services.
Has greatly reduced our development time and test time since we no longer
need to test both app and service executables.

Downside is that it is a separate tool to install.
Upside is that it has features such as :
  - run-once at startup.
  - auto-restart failed services
  - setting service dependences (don’t start until another service is up
and running)
  - set processor dependencies
