Yeah? My daemon keeps a small amount of state for "in process" requests 
related to long running background processes. I was hoping to have the daemon 
save the hash it was using, and restart the processes where they were when it 

What about this method makes it fragile? I guess that's what I was hoping to 
code into a more robust state. It's a cool feature, IMHO, to have automagical 
daemon persistence.
