1) Most Initscripts background themself. If they do not so, they usually have a reason to do so.
2) Daemons can be monitored and will be monitored on a good system. If you want some restart/... facility, DO NOT put it into init (which should init and nothing else), but use something like supervisord
3) It's just not its job and causes more problems, than it solves.

so, there was tail -f /var/log/syslog, now you need an own tool.

Unix: Everything is a file, small general purpose tools, which do one thing well.

yeah, more like tail on a logfile than using a *ctl tool. And a initsystem running just a sequence of commands instead of trying to manage daemons in containers ... if i want a daemon to run in an own cgroup, i set it up to do so.

The model exists and is called flattr. It does not work that good, i guess for serveral reasons:
- The amount of money you need to spend per month is only 2 Eur
- Initially everyone needed to pay, now you can receive without paying yourself iirc. So they'll have many "i hope i get flattred but do not contribute myself" users.
- They have a "like" Button, which needs thirdparty scripts and so on, so it gets blocked by antitracking addons, noscript, adblock, etc. instead of a browseraddon for the contributing user.

They cannot win. There are more people with the urge to block, than adblocker-blockers.
The best they can get, is to lose the adblocking visitors.

you followed the story about gmx, 1&1 and other united internet services, which called adblock a malware? Except from streisand, they got a very bad reputation in the media as well.

sounds like he has a lot of bitcoins, so he wants to preserve their status.

Altcoins are having success, even parody ones. Why? Because *coins are a ponzi scheme. Who comes first, gets more for less.
Yeah, creators ARE premining. But nevertheless, the first users can do cheap mining as well, paid by the users who are joining later. Because of this effect you cannot tell people to boycott altcoins, when they have the opportunity to make a lot more money there than with bitcoin.

So maybe there will not be mined more and more bitcoins, but for every coin-currency which is "used up", there will come a successor, which can be mined from start. So its a meta-coin, which does not work by hashing more and more transactions, but by creating new currencies, which will replace the old ones.
