Why based on code from sourceforge?  Why not base it off code that's
already here?  As in, why not base it off the daemon component that's
already in the commons sandbox and used by Tomcat 4.0 (that's what the
daemon proposal states)?  And if you're already going to merge with this
component, why even propose a new component?  Why not just start merging
on the daemon component that's already here?

Can someone provide more info on the daemon component in the commons
sandbox and what impact this proposal as on it?  Maybe Remy, 
Jean-Fredrick, or Pier who are listed as the initial committers for the 
daemon component (and also listed as initial committers in this proposal)?
