The service starts pop3proxy's main function, but smtpproxy is started
in pop3proxy's run function (which calls main).

What's the best way to fix this?

 o Move the smtpproxy starting code into main().
 o Add smtpproxy starting code into pop3proxy_service.py.
 o Have a separate service for smtpproxy (this is problematic because
they have to share the database).
 o Something else.

I don't really know much about Windows services, so I'm throwing this to
the -dev list.
