The daemon issue has been hashed out lots of times, and there are strong
technical reasons why Christian did it that way. Have you considered the
same issues? If so why is Christian wrong about them?

Just saying it's "too heavyweight" doesn't fly sorry, it's a very
low overhead process which doesn't do much except track data. How do you
solve the same problems it was designed to solve without an extra process?
