I think monit overlaps some with supervisor2's featureset, but not as 
much with zdaemon.  Having monit poll your process to check it's alive 
isn't as solid a solution as having a real parent process to do that. 
Monit would still be useful with zdaemon, because it can poll things 
like HTTP responses, memory usage, etc.
