I configured daemontools to start and manage mod-mono-server and it's
pretty good. It works very well. We can add a few lines to explain how
to configure daemontools to get a "good" service (uid/gid, logs, etc).
We can also provide initial directory structure for svscan.

I don't understand why the config files of XSP and mod-mono-server are
with the tests. As Gonzalo said, they must be with the exe file. Since I
remembered when I was configuring the service for daemontools, we can
use some environment varables to configure the application we run. Is it
a good idea to have some env-vars for tell xsp/mod-mono-server the port,
application, root, etc ?

See you again,
