ll.daemon (http://www.livinglogic.de/Python/daemon/index.html) seems to be a 
straightforward and very simple library for core daemon functionality.

Daemontools isn't very well respected by the SysV style initscript crowd, and 
vice versa.  That's an external non python dependency, and not commonly 
available.  Certainly not available on Windows.

I have written my own daemon base class (Pretty restrictive license 
[reciprocal], but I'm sure I could get it loosened).  
http://hg.rpath.com/raa-1.1?f=9ac380d082f4;file=raa/service/daemon.py I'm not 
married to it though, so would be happy to spin it out and remove the conary 
requirements, or just junk it.
