Thanks for all of the hard work you have been doing, Alan.

The decision is not mine, of course, but here is my vote.


Proper support for HUP is in my view an elemental requirement of any 
properly functioning UNIX daemon.

If you feel its to complex to do it safely within the running code, you 
can do it like sendmail daemon does, which simply rexecs itself with its 
launching arguments. Sendmail doesnt support HUP if it wasnt started 
with a full path.
