Hi All,

my 2 pence worth:

no. 1 sounds a little complex, config management for large sites is a
problem that should be solved centrally.

no. 2 Sounds like we are reinventing the wheel.  I though monit was supposed
to monitor ?  Sounds a bit like feature creep and this is difficult to do
cross platform.  init works.

3,4,5,6 All sound great.

This sounds like an excellent idea.

Please don't get me wrong - I think monit is great as a process watchdog
tool - and I love he small tool that do a small thing well unix mentality.
Hence my worry of feature creap.  Concentrate on monit(oring) and avoid
reinventing init.   There be dragons (and init just works!)

Keep up the good work.  I'm looking forward to the next release.
