   I moved it to a new list called FIXMEs. It is intended as an
intermediate list for fully diagnosed bugs. That's the third list but
don't worry, I intend to stop there.
   * Tasklets
   * FIXMEs
   * Tasklist

   Now, I really must get going on that contrib page.

   I was more thinking of calling fork+setsid directly but daemon()
could do the trick.  The question is whether it is portable. Checking...
   It is there in FreeBSD good.
   But it is not there on Solaris.

   So it is probably best to use fork+setsid directly. It is actually
quite simple.
