It's still a different command. And anyway, very often the daemon itself
needs to handle the PID files, which means that I can't use that.
But more importantly, start-stop-daemon only starts and stops the daemon
once. It's not a daemon monitor. Would there be any objection if I
replaced init.d scripts in some of my packages with runit configs (as
does the git daemon)?
