It was originally written to maintain sendmail and named but with a
little cleanup and additional work to add a periodic testing function
(e.g. to run a test script once every so often), a better 'stop'
interface, and a unix-domain socket for communicating requests, we
could integrate this into RCNG to provide automatic service
monitoring, restart, stop, and reporting features for all non-inetd
It would be very easy to integrate with the RCNG varsym variables that
are already being set.
