You probably didn't realize that pain until systemd. Otherwise if you searched for alternatives, daemontools family is pretty easy to find. Or you would be using BSD instead, with better security.

But, well, since I saw a 5-year-ago Stackoverflow question recommending double fork to daemonize which goes against process management best practices dating back to 1990s IBM AIX, I realize the Internet is not smart enough to get such delicate things straight. Maybe djb stuff was not easy to find. Whatever.

*"Portable across systemd" is not portable at all.
