Ahh.. daemon(8) would indeed be a good idea :)

However, I wonder about moving the 2>&1 to the end of the shell command.
IMHO, part of its purpose (or part of the purpose of the original |& csh
construct) is to make sure that anything svscan outputs on stderr is
picked up by readproctitle on stdin.  Moving the 2>&1 to the end of the
line would make it apply to readproctitle, not svscan, and any error
messages emitted from svscan would be lost, which kind of defeats the
purpose of executing readproctitle at all :)

No language can express every thought unambiguously, least of all this one.
