Great! BTW, sorry for not replying sooner.

How about "mainly two" instead of just "two"? Better to forewarn the reader that
this is not the whole picture yet.

Throughout the documentation, it seems better not to say "daemon" when this
rather well-defined Unix concept does not apply. The word "server" probably
serves the general purpose equally well: "without having to run a daemon as a
service" (in the quoted text) would then become "without having to run a server
as a daemon" (on MS Windows o.t.o.h., "service" would indeed substitute for
"daemon" in the corrected phrase).
