For some time I used this approach, with a "fake" init
script like '/etc/init.d/worker' that would start one of them,
so I could run it multiple times to spawn more workers.

A munin plugin monitored the number of active workers,
and if it detected less than normal, it would spawn a new

I thought that'd be neat, then I changed my mind.
It worked just fine, but in the end I didn't like
mixing munin plugins with application-related stuff.
