I don't see that there are any negatives to running daemons under
daemontools, only positives. The code I have submitted merely
provides options to support sysadmins who choose to run their daemons
under this process controller, it doesn't mandate their use. smbd
and nmbd continue to operate as normally and historically expected
unless one of these new flags is used when invoking them.
