I think it would be nice if you could have the option of running
fetchmail that way; I had to create my own start-stop-daemon wrapper
script (well, tweak an existing script really) because I prefer to run
fetchmail this way. But many people of course don't, and I'm not
really sure what the best way to offer the option to people who
install the package is.

True, but if over the course of time more programs are ESDified, I can
see this being a good thing to do sometime in the future.
