When people start talking about such functionalities I only ever see
Daemontools mentioned. I never used it, but from your description it
seems to have some shortcomings.

So with all that said, what's the use case for switching zdaemon out
for something else? What other functionalities are *you* looking for?
I don't think it ever caused anyone any headache apart from maybe
working around different ways in which forking/daemonizing is handled
