I've heard of daemons being started from /etc/inittab for some bizzar reason
to use the respawn ability... odd...
blah:2345:respawn:/path/to/blah -options &
Its probably due to the fact that it has the repoonce time of
a standalone, but also respawns if it falls over...
Might be handy for the likes of ssh daemons of _very_ remote servers...
