-1 :

That is more than one element!

I am -0 replacing the daemon API by introspection.
I am +1 for creating a commons-launcher component for Tomcat 5.
I am -1 renaming daemon to launcher.

The initial goal of org.apache.commons.daemon is to run JAVA services not only 
to start Tomcat. There was a JSR96 (http://www.jcp.org/jsr/detail/96.jsp) is 
there any new JSR on a similar topic?

The daemon code has been moved for jakarta-tomcat to 
jakarta-commons-sandbox/daemon moving it again does not seem a good idea.

I use daemon in several places:
- To start an embedded Tomcat.
- To run Tomcat on port 80 as user nobody.
- To start "services" on win98.
